Amidst the many challenges these past months, The Flagstaff Symphony Orchestra has remained determined to keep the music alive! We’ve made the decision, due to Coronavirus- imposed restrictions, that both of the fall concerts will move to backup dates already scheduled in March and May. The health and safety of our patrons continues to guide our planning and deliberate decision making on upcoming programming.
The dates for the 71st Season are as follows:
Musical Stories Jan 22, 2021 – showcasing some of the most beloved musical children’s stories depicted in the orchestral repertoire, including Peter and the Wolf, conducted by Daniel O’Bryant from NAU.
Broadway Classics Feb 20, 2021 – Saturday Matinee concert featuring the classic hits from the Golden Age of Broadway.
Celebrating Beethoven March 12, 2021 – honoring Beethoven’s 250th birthday, with guest artist Jeffrey Swan on piano.
Mother Earth Apr 16, 2021 – A unique concert and panel discussion focused on our environment, with a performance of Haydn’s Creation, performed by The Master Chorale of Flagstaff and the Shrine of the Ages choir from Northern Arizona University, conducted by Dr. Edith A. Copley.
Celebraciones! May 14, 2021 – collaborating with the Museum of Northern Arizona as we celebrate the traditional Mexican holiday Día de los Muertos with Flagstaff’s own Ballet Folklorico de Colores.
NOTE: Information about the Dec 4-5, 2020 Nutcracker Ballet concerts will be announced by Nov. 1, 2020.
Please consider a contribution to our Sustainment Fund so that we are able to resume great live performances when it is safe to do so again. While we are physically apart, it gives us great comfort to know that you are continuing your support. Together, we are FSO Strong!
