With Music Director Wesley Schulz at the helm, Auburn Symphony Orchestra (ASO) recently announced its 27th season which includes two outstanding soloists, one co-commission and Washington State premiere, and a wide variety of programs to inspire and delight.
The 2023-24 season includes four classical concerts, one holiday concert, one pops concert, two chamber music concerts and three summer concerts.
Some highlights include violist Jordan Bak performing Bela Bartok’s “Concerto for Viola” in January 2024 and percussionist Garrett Arney joining the orchestra for Emmanuel Sejourne’s “Concerto for Marimba and Orchestra” in April 2024.
ASO is also proud to be a partner in co-commissioning “The Cold Mountain Suite” by Jennifer Higdon, offering the Washington State Premiere in January 2024. The piece is inspired by the Cold War-era novel by Charles Frazier.
ASO’s annual pops concert takes inspiration from adventure films like “Wonder Woman” and “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.” ASO’s annual Holiday Spectacular features a live performance of the soundtrack to the beloved film, “The Snowman,” plus our annual sing-along and much more.
Auburn Symphony Orchestra musicians can be found in the community over the summer.
Free performances take place at the Auburn Farmers Market Friday, July 16 and for the City of Auburn’s Summer Sounds series Thursday, August 3. ASO’s third annual concert at Soos Creek Botanical Garden caps off the summer season Sunday, August 27. ASO’s Chamber Series is changing to a new night — Thursdays — at St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church in Auburn.
