• Meet Doug Wohl

  • Doug Wohl - Local Business Owner - Optician - Lens Tech - Musician in Delaware Valley Symphony Orchestra

    Doug Wohl (pronounced "Wall") has been an Optician and Business Entrepreneur from 1985 until present. He has worked and managed a chain of optical stores and helped build a King of Prussia private doctor's practice from ground floor into a successful, thriving practice for over 10 years.

    In 1999, Doug opened up his own retail and wholesale optical business with its own lens cutting laboratory - Wohl Optics - on Street Road in Warminster, PA.

    Doug Wohl has always had a passion for music. Doug Wohl started playing saxophone in 5th grade. He played in various groups during high school.  

    A local boy, after graduating from William Tennent High School, he was accepted to study music at the Berklee College of Music. However, young Doug decided to join the Navy.  He spent the majority of his military career on Nuclear Fast Attack Submarines. Doug was a plank owner and stationed on the (SSN 705) USS City of Corpus Christi in Groton CT.

    He put the sax down for twenty-five years to earn a living and raise his son. One day, his brother asked Doug to teach his nephew to play the saxophone and the sax that Doug so loved to play beckoned him back. He picked up the horn with a vengeance and now plays Baritone and Alto sax in various groups.

    Doug never lost his passion for music. His favorite instruments are Baritone and Alto Saxophone. In addition to playing with the Delaware Valley Symphony Quartet, Doug plays with the Doylestown Heat Big Band, Standard Time Jazz Ensemble, Delaware Valley University Symphonic and Jazz Bands and various other charity and nonprofit groups. Based in Bucks County, the Delaware Valley Saxophone Quartet has performed for more than seven years in locations ranging from the Constitution Center in Philadelphia to summer concerts on Nantucket.

    Always a person who gives back to others, Doug has been instrumental in setting up, establishing and running a non-profit music program for children.
