"It's Fortuitous"


Great performances, great music and great times at 42!

 Yes… it’s hard to believe that the Macomb Symphony Orchestra has provided that and more for 42 years. Entertaining and edifying our friends in ways that quicken their step and sharpen their eye, the M.S.O. is the cultural resource valued by our long-standing patrons as well as our most recent friends.

 Be part of the atmosphere by your regular attendance and participation. Season tickets are a bargain. The annual concert of ethnicity will focus on all things Finnish this October. If you are unfamiliar with Jean Sibelius, Finland’s greatest composer, this performance should open a remedy that.  In December, film maven Kevin Walsh will return by popular demand from last season with holiday music made popular in TV shows.  In March, a concert of baroque concertos will be presented. Virtuoso performers drawn from the orchestra will be the focus for an intimate afternoon. The April finale will offer music conducive to “heavy breathing.” Music of the Romantic era, the 19th century, is passionate and sensuous.

 In addition to our music making, the M.S.O. will present a fun filled evening at the Stahl Auto Museum on Wednesday, November 16. Last fall we presented “Motorcars, Merlot and Music” with great reviews and the request to recreate the party. We’ve heard you! Tickets will be available at the October concert, from orchestra board members or from the symphony office by calling (586) 286-2045.            

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
