It’s been 50 years since the Warren community rallied to ensure that their community was culturally enriched with a professional orchestra and that there was a local means to provide music education to its children and those in surrounding communities.
“This orchestra truly is about the Warren community,” says Joyce Russell, Warren Symphony Orchestra’s (WSO) Executive Director. “Fifty years ago, our community rallied to raise funds to bring an orchestra to Warren. Our 50th season is about the tenacity and strength of our neighbors who value making music together.”
“Our community always has been a wonderful place to live,” says WSO Board of Directors President Lori Stone. “Warren has just one of a few professional orchestras in metro Detroit and is a marvelous benefit of living in the Warren community. We are so thrilled for all our supporters, donors and volunteers who make this musical magic happen every season.”
This season’s schedule is as follows at Warren Woods Community Auditorium –
Sunday, November 19 – Dvorak Symphony No. 8 and DeFalla, Brahms and Mahler (a selection from the WSO’s first concert 50 years ago!)
