Tom Murphy Joins Board of Directors

of the New West Symphony


(THOUSAND OAKS, CA) – March 8, 2017 -- Longtime Ventura County resident Tom Murphy has joined the Board of Directors of the New West Symphony.

A civil engineer, Murphy has owned and operated his own consulting firm in Camarillo for the past 25 years where he also currently serves on the Camarillo Planning Commission.  He and his wife Sue have been residents of Ventura County for more than three decades after Murphy attained his bachelors of science degree in civil engineering/material science from the University of California, Davis.


“I truly appreciate the incredible opportunity to serve on the NWS Board and look forward to rolling up my sleeves and helping support the symphony however I can,” Murphy says.  “We are very blessed to have such a wonderful organization right in our own backyard.  Through live performances and extensive outreach programs the symphony inspires passion for music and we are a much richer community for having the symphony as a part of our lives.”


Founded in 1995, the New West Symphony is a professional orchestra that draws its players from the rich talent pool of professional Los Angeles-area musicians. The Symphony is the resident company of the Oxnard Performing Arts Center, the Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza, and Barnum Hall in Santa Monica.  It presents six Masterpiece Series concerts annually, performing major works from the symphonic repertoire with internationally-acclaimed artists as guest soloists.  The Symphony also provides quality outreach and educational opportunities for the communities it serves through its annual Symphonic Adventures concert programs for youth, its traveling Music Van, and its New West Symphony Harmony Project of Ventura County,  More information is available at or follow us on Facebook at
