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.

Come and join us for these events:

  • Ascension (Jessica DiMari), Symphony No. 3 (Ludwig van Beethoven), excerpts from The Nutcracker (Piotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky)
  • Ancient Forests Once Stood Here (Sarah Hopkins), España (Emmanuel Chabrier), Symphony No. 3 (Florence Price)
