Join musicians of the New Haven Symphony Orchestra in a celebration of the Sounds of the Season. A chamber ensemble of top musicians will get your toes tapping and fill your heart with holiday spirit.
The New Haven Symphony Orchestra is comprised of the top professional musicians from throughout the Tri-State area. Its members are graduates of the Julliard School, Manhattan School of Music, and (in particular) the Yale School of Music who perform with the New York Philharmonic, American Symphony Orchestra, New York Pops, and many others. They appear as soloists with orchestra around the country and are esteemed teachers of the next generation of American musicians.
The New Haven Symphony Orchestra fulfills its mission to increase the impact and value of orchestral music for our audiences through high quality, affordable performances and educational programming. The Symphony is the fourth-oldest symphony orchestra in America, after the New York Philharmonic, the Boston Symphony, and the Chicago Symphony. Since its inception, the NHSO has performed regularly in New Haven, most of that time in Yale’s historic Woolsey Hall. It has also toured throughout Connecticut and beyond (including performances at Carnegie Hall), performed numerous radio broadcasts, and made the world-premiere recording of the complete five-movement version of Mahler’s First Symphony. In addition to presenting classical repertoire, the orchestra has a long tradition of performing pops and educational concerts throughout the state. This orchestra is comprised of 66 professionals, most of whom live and work in the greater New Haven area. The Symphony’s extensive education programs involve 42 school districts throughout the State of Connecticut, while the free KidTix program provides free tickets to thousands of young listeners annually.
