A modern symphony orchestra is a miraculous thing; it transforms marks on a page into sounds that live and breathe with us. With its many moving parts, possibilities always exist to find something new, even in music that is familiar. Our 2017-2018 season will be a journey to discover new sounds together in music that can only be described as timeless. Join us! We can’t wait to share it with you.
