For more information, contact:
Kathleen Foltz, Marketing & Operations Manager

Celebrate the New Year with Heroic Music for Brass & Organ, presented as part of Waterbury Symphony Orchestra’s Music in Great Spaces series. The tantalizing combination of brass and organ presented in a cathedral acoustic is one that cannot be replicated. Be prepared to relish in sonorous mastery, led by Music Director and Conductor Leif Bjaland at two spectacular locations, each unique in their own way.
Travel to Litchfield to the exquisite interior of St. Michaels Parish on January 28, at 4pm, or take time to experience a Waterbury landmark in the timeless architectural beauty of St. John's Episcopal Church on February 4, at 3pm. The joyous fanfare of organ and brass will create a thrilling, resonant sound to celebrate the timeless beauty of both of these historically significant structures in the region. A true sonic adventure, appropriate for the 80th celebratory season of the WSO. Enjoy the wonderful heritage of literature composed for organ and brass by composers such as Gabrieli, Telemann, and Britten. Don’t miss this wonderful opportunity to be swept away by the combination of organ pipes and the perfect blend and fantastic dynamic range of brass, conducted by Leif Bjaland.

About Waterbury Symphony Orchestra
Founded in May 1938 under the direction of Maestro Mario DiCecco, the Waterbury Symphony Orchestra (WSO) has spent the past several decades promoting the understanding, appreciation and enjoyment of symphonic and orchestral music. Originally incorporated as the Waterbury Civic Orchestra (1940), the Symphony and its mission have grown in both vision and artistic merit, expanding from a community orchestra to the Waterbury Symphony Orchestra (1956). The WSO has been led by Music Director and Conductor Leif Bjaland since 1994.

The WSO builds connections across our region with exploratory concerts, events, and educational programs. The WSO maintains a firm commitment to produce programs that are of value to its patrons, participants and community partners. This commitment is rooted in the Symphony’s core belief that the study of musical instruments and participation in musical performance is essential to creating community.
The WSO has been Orchestra-in-Residence at Naugatuck Valley Community College since 1992.
