SALISBURY — The Salisbury Symphony’s 2022-2023 season is officially open. The orchestra series concerts feature two Second Symphonies by Rachmaninov and Brahms, two violinists including young concert artist Lun Li and concertmaster Dan Skidmore, J. Zach Saffa playing the Grieg piano concerto and a variety of vocalists as well singing playful Stravinsky or celebrating the works of Stephen Sondheim.
The new Serenade Series features small ensembles from the orchestra and is intended to showcase musicians in a new and exciting way. These hour-long concerts are hosted in more intimate venues.
Fall registration is available for after-school elementary class instruction in violin, viola and cello for students 8 years old and up. Single-site concerts are performed at the end of the first semester, and a gala concert including students from all sites plus the youth orchestra is presented at the end of the second semester. The Salisbury Symphony Youth Orchestra is hosting virtual auditions for the fall semester as well. Originating as a string ensemble for younger students, the youth orchestra now includes students between the ages of 10 and 18. The youth orchestra meets weekly through the school year and plays two concerts a season. The symphony’s full season of education programs are available online at salisburysymphony.org/learn.
