Auburn Symphony Orchestra is launching its 23rd season with a lineup of concerts for every season.

This year, the nonprofit arts organization has aimed to expand its programs and enhance its community presence and education outreach. Musicians will be seen at more venues than ever before.

The Summer Series is comprised of one outdoor concert at historic Mary Olson Farm, one chamber concert at Geaux Brewing and one free performance at the Auburn International Farmers Market.

The Chamber Series concerts will grace St. Matthew Episcopal Church in Auburn, Kent Lutheran Church, and Geaux Brewing.

The Symphony Series is four full symphony concerts at Auburn Performing Arts Center, led by Music Director Wesley Schulz.

Adrian Wyard – a Seattle artist who provided visual accompaniment at ASO’s sellout concert, The Planets, in April 2018 – joins the orchestra for a living Pictures at an Exhibition multimedia experience.

All of the concert programs are made up of a variety of beautiful music pieces, classical and contemporary.

Free parking is available near all venues. Students receive discounted tickets.

Season tickets are on sale for the Symphony and Chamber series. Single tickets for those concerts go on sale June 1. Tickets to the Summer Series are on sale now.
