Grier Moffatt Williams, Jr.
Grier Moffatt Williams, Sr. (1931-2004) was a music director and educator best known for his 17-year tenure with the Pensacola Symphony Orchestra. He also served as choir director of First Presbyterian Church for 20 years.
In 1979, he was asked to serve as interim music director and conductor of the Pensacola Symphony Orchestra. Under his leadership, the PSO broadened its repertoire, increased ticket sales, and moved its performance venue from the Pensacola High School auditorium to the newly-renovated Saenger Theatre in 1982.
In 1990, Williams invited schoolteacher Susan Pote to assemble a group of children to accompany the orchestra for choral pieces. The group was immensely successful and grew into the standalone Pensacola Children's Chorus.
