2021 – 2022 Concerts & Fundraisers Schedule

 

Due to the COVID-19 Coronavirus, we cancelled  all of our  concerts for the 2020-2021 concert year.  However, the Paradise Performing Arts Center reopened for live events in May of 2021, and we held a LIVE CONCERT by the Paradise Symphony Orchestra on Sunday, May 16 at the PPAC.  “ARTISTS AND AMERICANO, was presented featuring the winners of the Young Artists Competition from 2019.  Allie Braito, Junior Division Winner and Sarah Harris, Senior Division Winner delighted and thrilled the audience with their presentations.   In addition, the Symphony presented  a rousing patriotic music concert on the 4th of July.  Both of these concerts were free and were enthusiastically supported by the public.  We also held our major annual  Summer Fundraiser, “Music Under the Stars”, on August 29, 2021 at 5pm, and it was a rousing success.  Our next major event was on December 5, 2021 at the PPAC, “Holiday in Paradise“, at pm.  See the Presidents letter on the Home Page for more details.

Thank you for your ongoing support of the symphony.

Sweet Endings

Delight in the orchestral debuts of our Young Artist Soloists, then enjoy the grandeur of “Finlandia”, the thrill of the “March Slav”, and the beauty of Strings with  Elgar’s Serenade for Strings”!  Also enjoy Mascagni’s Intermezzo from “Cavalleria Rusticana”.   What an extraordinary manner to bring the season to a brilliant ending!                                                             

Fundraisers

The first Fundraiser for the 2021-2022 season, “Music Under the Stars”, was held as scheduled on August 29, 2021 at the Bille Park Pavilion, and was highly successful, raising some much needed funding for the upcoming season.  The event featured a delicious hot served meal, prepared by The Italian Guy Catering, both Live and Silent Auctions with approximately 60 donated items, and one of the more unusual concerts performed by the Symphony Orchestra.  There were five interesting ensembles derived from the Orchestra including a Trombone quartet, a Woodwind quartet, a String quartet, and a Vocal and Guitar Duet, all of which was followed by a presentation of “Disney Magic” by all of the ensembles combined.   Attendees of all ages joined Conductor Lloyd Roby singing familiar words to the Disney songs to end a wonderful evening.  We have begun our planning for the Winter Fundraiser, “From the Symphony With Love”, which is scheduled to be held at 6 pm, on February 13, 2022, at the Veteran’s Memorial Hall, 6550 Skyway, Paradise, CA.  Tickets which include dinner are available for $50 per person from now until February 10, to allow food planning.  (A table of 8 may be reserved for $350 until Feb. 4).  Tickets without dinner are available at the door for $45 per person.
