SATURDAY, APRIL 4, 2020 – CANCELED
The Traverse Symphony Orchestra’s first priority is the health and safety of all of our concert goers, musicians, and staff. Therefore, on the recommendation of Governor Whitmer’s emergency declaration, in consultation with the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, and with the recommendation of the Traverse Symphony Orchestra Board of Directors, we have decided to cancel our April 4th Vienna Fireworks! Gala concert and fundraiser.
Even though it was necessary to protect both our audience and our musicians, cancelling our single largest annual fundraiser is going to put the Orchestra in considerable financial difficulties this Spring. We are applying for all Federal Relief programs for which we are eligible, but ultimately it will be the generosity of individual donors who will support our musicians and ensure that our orchestra survives this crisis, continuing to play long into the future.
The Traverse Symphony Orchestra needs your support today. All donations are fully tax-deductible and can be made online by clicking the Donate button below. Your gift will help us keep the curtain open, keep the music playing, and will support our education programs and teaching faculty.
Please stay well, and enjoy our “Virtual TSO” concerts and musician’s solo offerings. We all look forward to a time when we can get together again to share the power of live music.
KEVIN RHODES Conductor
Beethoven Symphony No. 7
Strauss Blue Danube Waltz, Thunder and Lightening Polka, and more!
Evoking the playful spirit of a Viennese ball on New Year’s Day, the evening will feature joyful waltzes from veritable waltz king, Johann Strauss Jr, along with Beethoven’s richly melodic ebullient Symphony No. 7, overflowing with musical vitality and sheer musical optimism.
