"Fabulous at Forty"

music_director_1In 1974, the Macomb Symphony Orchestra began as a small string ensemble with a mixture of students and community members. Today, the MSO has flourished into a 70 member orchestra and has become one of the most respected symphonies in southeastern Michigan. Please join us this season to help celebrate our forth anniversary.

In October, "Ciao Italia," an evening of Italian culture and music will be offered. The orchestra will be joined by well-respected singers in a program that included operatic arias and Neapolitan songs as well tuneful instrumental works. On November 30th, "Viva Vivaldi," the holiday concert will present the composer in a 21st century setting. Joining the MSO will be three fine choirs and vocal soloists. In March, " Music '70s Style," will focus on our 40th year with music from the '70s and will be performed at the Macomb Music Theater in Mount Clemens. The season will conclude on May 1st with "Carmina Burana," by Carl Orff, a spectacular cantata with pleanty of color, energy and rhythmic drive. It's a complete experience.

As always, we would like to offer season subscribers one additional ticket to the concert of their choice FREE.  We will provide a voucher, good at the box office, as our way of saying THANKS!

Enjoy the music!
Thomas Cook,
Music Director

What better way could we find to conclude an anniversary season than with a spectacular like Carmina Burana. The term "block buster" may have been invented to describe this affirmation of life. Composer Carl Orff was inspired to create this "profane cantata" after discovering the medieval texts of sensual poems and lyrics glorifying the physical side of life. The words and the music seem a perfect match even though hundreds of years separate their creation.
