Discover a New Season

Deeply satisfying, well-balanced repertoire filled with music you already love presented alongside new favorites.

Next season will give you core repertoire spanning the centuries, from the classical eloquence of Bach, Haydn, and Beethoven to the romanticism of Schubert; from the opulent lyricism of Saint-Saëns to the vibrant eclecticism of Ravel and his 20thcentury contemporaries – all of it rendered with verve and imagination. 

You’ll hear the other-worldly glass harmonica, invented by our own Ben Franklin, in a concert showcasing the music of the Enlightenment.  You’ll enjoy the seductive rhythms of the bandoneon in a dance-themed program that partners Piazzolla with Tchaikovsky, Stravinsky, and Higdon. Each concert also brings a world-class guest artists that include new faces and returning favorites.
