“This season’s program is designed to transport you in time and focus on specific musical eras. We will present new works, traditional favorites, works rarely heard as well as new ways to listen to favorite familiar pieces. I anticipate that you will be inspired by the performances of the exceptional soloists that will be appearing with the orchestra, as well as the virtuosity of our own incredible players.”Glen Cortese, Artistic Director
