Waterbury Symphony Orchestra

2017 - 2018: Sonic Structures

2017-18 Our 80th Season!
SONIC STRUCTURES

Dear Friends of Music,

Introducing the 2017-2018 season Sonic Structures!

Eighty years ago the Waterbury Symphony Orchestra debuted in 1938 just as the iconic Route 66 was completed. One of the most famous nostalgic roads in the United States, Route 66 builds connections... taking travelers through the architectural treasures of USA. Join the WSO in the journey through an epic odyssey in our 2017-18 season to experience and explore the hidden gems in our Waterbury community. We are building connections across our regions, making roads, and making connections together.

In celebration of our four score years, we are branching out in our travels with concerts throughout Northwestern Connecticut with a series called Music in Great Spaces. From historic homes and magnificent churches to a cutting edge art gallery and an artisanal distillery, we're looking forward to an artful collision of great musical sounds and intriguing structures in our backyard and beyond. Music is a journey that we can all experience together!

Warmly,
Leif Bjaland
