Welcome!

The 2015-2016 season is the Holyoke Civic Symphony’s 49th season, and it is my 19th season as conductor of the orchestra. All season long we will be gearing up for celebrating two significant round numbers next season. In October we will have a Halloween-themed concert especially for kids and delightful for adults as well. In December we will feature the unlikely combination of Handel’s Messiah and music from the Star Wars movies. In March we will be reveling in the Russian music of Glière and Tchaikovsky, and in May we will be springing forward to our big anniversary season with favorites by Mozart and Copland, plus a new piece written especially for the orchestra.

The Holyoke Civic Symphony offers an intriguing and eclectic mix of music. Classical and popular music are often juxtaposed in the same concert, and great masterpieces from music history coexist with works that were written just yesterday. Our concerts are always fun, accessible, and educational. Looking forward to seeing you in the audience at all of our concerts this season.
