Come join us for our 16th Season!
"Music Lives!"

When you think of orchestral music, perhaps what comes to mind are the many symphonies written by the “old masters” hundreds of years ago. Yet orchestral repertoire encompasses so much more. There are many talented composers alive today, creating brilliant symphonic music in our own time. This season is all about sharing some of those works with you. From John Williams to Ypsilanti’s own Paul Keller, each concert will feature works by contemporary composers, proving joyfully that “Music Lives!”
