Upcoming Events

  • Our New World

    November 3rd, 2019

    The PSO’s first concert will be “Our” New World on November 3, 2019 at 7:00pm in the Paradise Performing Arts Center. It will open a week-long celebration of the progress that has occurred since November 8, 2018.
    The concert will begin with Aaron Copland’s brave and fitting “Fanfare for the Common Man.” In the same way Paradisians love their home, Alexander Borodin felt about his native and far- reaching Russia. He wrote of the beauty of Southern Russia in his “Polovetsian Dances”. The sense of devastation and recovery felt throughout the North State was also felt by all Americans during World War II and captured musically by Richard Rodgers in his epic “Victory at Sea.”
    The PSO will debut a delightful piece by their colleague Trevor Lloyd composed expressly for this concert: “Song for A Glorious Day.” The finale will be Anton Dvorak’s “New World Symphony.” Written in 1893 about the growth and achievements of America as a foundling nation it is apt to the growth and recovery currently being experienced by Paradise and the surrounding communities – Our New World. We hope you will join us. Tickets are available at our ticket outlets in Paradise and Chico, and online at

  • Camp Fire Update

    We are pleased to inform you that the Paradise Symphony Orchestra is alive and well, following the devastating Camp Fire that destroyed much of the town of Paradise. Our hearts and prayers are with those who lost loved ones in this tragic event. Many of our musicians lived in the affected communities, and were able to evacuate safely and took with them their valued instruments, though we do know of some musicians who have lost instruments, music, music stands, etc., that are part of their ability to continue to perform and entertain us with their musical abilities. Under the leadership of native Paradisian Dawn Harms, a fund has been established with the Paradise Symphony Society to support the needs of these musicians as they work to rebuild their lives and to support the ongoing efforts to ensure cultural arts is alive and well on the Paradise Ridge. Please consider making a contribution to Together for Paradise through our website.




    Thank you for your ongoing support of the Paradise Symphony Orchestra. We are continuing to focus on making music for our community, and we appreciate your contributions and your attendance. Our calendar of events may change, based upon availability of venues, musicians, and other resources, so check our website regularly.
