Hours of Music
For the past 62 years, The Paradise Symphony Orchestra has been providing excellent music for our community, and despite COVID-19, we have been working very hard behind the scenes to continue to provide musical performances once we are able to do so safely. We hope to see you in our concert audiences once again, soon!
In the meantime, we have some exciting news to share with you! We have a small concert planned for March, and we hope you will join us online as a few of our PSO musicians perform some wonderful pieces for your enjoyment. Watch our website and our Facebook page for more details about the date and time for this mini concert!
We are extremely grateful to a number of individuals who have helped us with these efforts and we especially want to thank Apollo Piano who has generously allowed our musicians to safely perform and be recorded in their studios. We sincerely hope that this mini concert will be just the first of its kind and we will be able to feature more of our orchestra members at upcoming events such as this.
We also want to thank the North Valley Community Foundation (NCVF) who provided a grant that underwrites the costs for these efforts. Without the income from our concert ticket sales and annual sponsorships that normally fund our expenses, we are indebted to the NCVF for their significant support following the Camp Fire to support our organization and our communities.
Our original plan was to offer you a traditional season of concerts. Plans change. We hope you will be blessed by this new innovative option we can offer, so that we keep sharing the music with you.

News & Updates
We regret that we will be unable to perform our regular concert season as planned, due to COVID-19. In order to keep our musicians and our concert-goers safe, we have cancelled all of our concerts for the 2020-2021 Season, as well as our February Fundraiser. We are investigating an on-line concert for March. Stay tuned for further developments. We are also hopeful to be able to return to our normal Concert Season for the 2021-2022 Season, beginning with the Summer Fundraiser, "Music Under the Stars", in August, 2021.
ALL In-person CONCERTS BEGIN AT 6 PM, AT THE PARADISE PERFORMING ARTS CENTER. Due to the generosity of the North Valley Community Foundation, we had planned to offer all concerts in the 2020-2021 Concert Season to the public free of charge. However, with the extended length of the COVID restrictions, we have been unable to do so. See the Society President's letter and the notice above for details on plans for the remainder of the 2020-2021 Season. Individuals joining the Symphony Society at the Tempo Club Level ($50) or higher, on-line or at the door, will be seated in the Preferred Seating section for future In-Person Concerts.
Our only Fundraiser event this year is now scheduled to be “Music Under the Stars”, to be held in August, 2021. When the date is announced, tickets for this event may be reserved on the Get Tickets page and picked up at “WILL CALL” on the day of the event. The event will feature wonderful music by the Symphony Orchestra, a buffet style meal, and both live and silent auctions.
