Join Us for our 33rd Concert Season!
We invite you to join us for another year of inspiring orchestral works performed with passion, warmth, and artistry. Often favorably compared to professional orchestras in large cities, SPM is proud to have served our region for 32 years, presenting formal concerts, collaborating with school-age musicians, and partnering with extraordinary young soloists destined for international careers like pianist George Li, silver medalist in the recent Tchaikovsky International Competition. We look forward to making music for you!

From the great German musical tradition three works that couldn’t be more different or more appealing. Mozart’s playful majesty, Schumann’s intensely poetic writing for the sonorous cello, and an orchestral jaunt through Wagner’s great comedic opera guarantee to uplift the soul.

Join SPM and Music Director, Mark Churchill, as we welcome warm weather with "hot" music, packed with melodies and rhythms inspired by Czech, Hispanic, and Latin traditions. The program includes Dvorak's beloved Symphony No. 7, Danzon No. 2 by Enrique Marquez, made an international sensation by the Simon Bolivar Youth Orchestra under the baton of Gustavo Dudamel.
