Auburn Symphony Orchestra announces new concert season

They expect to return to in-person shows beginning in October.

Auburn Symphony Orchestra announces programming for 2021-2022, the Symphony’s 25th season. The symphony will return to in-person concerts beginning in October.

The upcoming season will have more live concerts than ever before. Six symphony performances will include four classical programs, the annual holiday concert, and a new pops concert. Details are available at

ASO’s first pops concert, entitled Hollywood Takes Flight, will feature music from some

family favorite Hollywood film scores including Star Wars, Harry Potter, Back to the Future, How to Train Your Dragon, E.T. The Extraterrestrial, and more.

The season will also bring several guest performers including Anton Nel, pianist, Bella Hristova, violinist, John Carrington, harpist, and The Guild Dance Company.

Auburn Symphony will perform concerts at the Federal Way Performing Arts and Event Center in the 2021-22 season.

At the time of planning the new season, Auburn Performing Arts Center at Auburn High School was not available due to existing health and safety restrictions from the school district. ASO does plan to return to their home in Auburn the following season when conditions allow.

Subscriptions go on sale starting June 6. A limited number of subscriptions will be available until capacity limits are raised. Single tickets go on sale August 1. Subscriptions offer the best seats at the best price – 6 concerts for the price of 5 with a full season package.
