Our 2017-2018 Season

Our ninth season is a musical journey around the world exploring the depths of the human condition. We will be featuring classic and new works, at least one work by a female composer on each concert, and our first ever performance by a transgender composer.

Our series this  year features four orchestral concerts, one QUOtets chamber concert, and our annual Gay-la.
