Tuscarawas Philharmonic was formed in 1935 when a young violinist and conductor, Gilbert Roehm, gathered a group of musicians. He formed small orchestras because he felt that the musical community of Tuscarawas County had not been developed properly. He brought forth talented people from all sorts of professions, including secretaries, students, clerks and music teachers. The orchestra was led by Eugene Kilinsky in 1960, Robert Cronquist in 1968, Margery Kent Henke in 1975 and Eric Benjamin in 1997. Since then, Benjamin has stayed the music director and conductor for the group. He has conducted Newton North High School’s orchestra, taught the students music theory and also, chamber music. He is known to design creative programs that captivate the audience and leave a lasting impression. Benjamin is also an arranger and composer and his creation ‘Klassical Kids’ is a show for young people that focuses on classical music. He is responsible for preparing Tuscarawas Philharmonic for performances like Vaughan Williams’ Five Mystical Songs, Faure’s Requiem, Handel’s Messiah and the Mozart Requiem. He also leads community events that feature the Children’s Chorus for Philharmonic. He is listed among great conductors, many of them who have even taught him in the past. These famous conductors include Leonard Bernstein, Gustav Meier, Gunther Schuller and Kurt Sanderling. The Ohio Music Teachers Association has also awarded him the title of ‘Composer of the Year’.
