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 canceled our April 4th Vienna Fireworks! Gala concert and fundraiser.
Without this event and the support derived from it, our ability to bring Symphony concerts to Northern Michigan is at stake. 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.
It is our hope that you will join with other generous symphony patrons and consider the following:
- Donate your April 4th ticket as a fully tax-deductible gift.
- As many of you would have done at our April 4th event, consider giving a gift in support of our work. Instead of raising your auction paddle, raise your hand and type in a donation.
To donate your ticket, or to request a refund, please contact the Symphony office by email or leave a message at 231-947-7120. Refunds may be requested until May 1, 2020, at which point, any outstanding tickets will be gratefully acknowledged as donations.
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.
