Perfect timing.

Our musicians have it and so can you! This is the perfect time to be a part of the Syracuse Symphony Orchestra as we celebrate our 2010 2011, 50th Anniversary season. There has never been a better time to subscribe and experience the goosebumps on the back of your neck or a jaw-dropping, “wow” moment with the SSO. The thrill is in hearing the music live. We live for live music. This season we bring you the swing and swagger of brassy big bands as well as the beauty, power and passion behind the masterworks of the classical canon. Plus, the brightest stars are coming to Syracuse to take part in our Golden Anniversary celebration – stars like Yo-Yo Ma, Michael Feinstein, Eliot Fisk, and Kazuyoshi Akiyama. It’s our Golden Anniversary but it’s your Golden Opportunity to be a part of something special. Join us in making music and making history by remembering our past, celebrating our present and looking forward to the future. We are your Symphony and we look forward to seeing you in the 2010-2011 season.
