Waterbury Symphony Orchestra (WSO) celebrates its 80th anniversary with its 2017-2018 season, Sonic Structures: A Visual Journey of Sound and Our Surroundings.

The WSO made its debut 80 years ago, just as the iconic Route 66 was being completed, in 1938. One of the most famous, nostalgic roads in the United States, Route 66 builds connections that take travelers through places that contain many of the USA’s architectural treasures. The 2017-2018 season offers listeners an opportunity to journey with the WSO through an epic odyssey that explores the hidden gems of Waterbury and the surrounding communities, forging connections throughout the region that the Symphony calls home.

The 80th season features several high-profile classical artists, including Grammy Award-winning pianist Garrick Ohlsson and virtuoso violinist Natasha Korsakova. German newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung describes Korsakova’s playing as a “sinfully beautiful listening experience.”

In celebration of four score years, the WSO is branching out with a new 5 performance series called Music in Great Spaces. These musical excursions take listeners beyond the concert hall and into venues throughout the region that represent an artful collision of structures and sonorities. From historic homes and magnificent churches, to cutting-edge galleries and artisanal distilleries, these spaces foster a uniquely intimate bond between artists and audience members.

The WSO begins its exploration with Hits of 8 Decades,.. read more
