Happy Holidays!

Thank you to all our patrons – our 38th Season is off to a wonderful start! In September, we starting offering reserved seating, visited Three Centuries of Mozart, received over $14,000 in grants (some of which helped purchase tom-toms, suspended cymbals, and Musser chimes), had our first ticket giveaway, and we got into the holiday spirit with some great singalongs! Have a safe and happy holiday season and we’ll see you March 14th for The Colorful Orchestra!
