    2016-2017 SEASON

  • Dear Friends,

    On behalf of the entire York Symphony Orchestra: THANK YOU!

    Thanks to the support of the York community we had the opportunity to play for packed houses throughout the 2015-2016 season as we celebrated the beauty and power of nature through music In Natures Realm. We were very excited to welcome so many new faces as well as our longtime supporters who share our passion for exceptional music.

    This season, were excited to take our programming in a new direction as we invite you to join us on A Musical Journey Through Time. We will be highlighting the most important orchestral composers of each period of music history. We look forward to bringing you a mix of some of the best-known works from each period alongside some of the best-kept secrets.

    In addition to our Classical Series, we have a very exciting Pops Series lineup for you as well. Well continue our tradition of a Holiday Pops Spectacular; well celebrate the 85th birthday of the king of film music, John Williams; and we will commemorate the 20th anniversary of the motion picture Titanic by performing highlights from the Academy Award-winning film as well as highlights from the Tony Award-winning musical Titanic, and the actual music played onboard the ship!

    I am happy to welcome you to the 2016-2017 season, A Musical Journey Through Time. We look forward to seeing you at the Strand!
