WELCOME TO THE 2019 | 2020 SEASON

WELCOME TO THE 2019 | 2020 SEASON

Our 2019-20 season is truly bold, entertaining, ambitious and adventurous. The orchestra will shine with a diverse symphonic repertoire including orchestral fireworks by Mozart, Mendelssohn, Brahms, Dvořák, Shostakovich, Tchaikovsky, and of course we will celebrate Beethoven’s 250th anniversary. We are delighted to open our season with the legendary soprano Reneé Fleming; our Pops series features a long-awaited appearance from Pink Martini; and movie fans will sink their teeth into a blockbuster series including Jurassic Park.
