Inspiring Artistry. Engaging Community.
"Everyone really loves classical music. They just don't know it yet. If they don't love it, they haven't experienced it under the right circumstances. The symphony is more than just an orchestra; it poses a global model of cooperation. A musician must adjust their belief system and values to serve the greater whole of the orchestra. No one person is more important than another and the cooperation creates a magical, effortless sounding event that inspires the soul."
