This is an exciting year for the orchestra, as we celebrate our 20th Season in the Twin Tiers! In October we honored our history with some of the great Masterworks that the orchestra has performed throughout the years. In February, Maestro Grow and the symphony continued our season with a Celebration of Genius, exploring the works of some of the greatest masters; Mozart, Haydn, and the Chevalier de St. Georges. Our final concert in May will be a Celebration of Symphony, a combination of orchestra favorites and beloved arrangements by the orchestra’s founding conductor and music director, John Whitney.
Maestro Grow, the orchestra, and the Board of Directors will also be celebrating YOU, our wonderful audience members, who continue to be the reason we love what we do. Please join us in our revelry as we celebrate 20 years together, and look forward to many more!
We welcome new and renewed online subscriptions and donations through our TICKET and DONATE tabs above.
