Classical Music Is Passion
Our maestro is like you - a mix between Beethoven and Haydn - with a hint of Mozart
Maestro is working his next opus - our events calendar for 2022 - stay tuned
SymphonyHour.org was formed in 2019
Although relatively new our organization is passionate
about sharing the history and societal impact of classical music
Promoting learning about classical music is our primary mission
We strive to meet people where they are at whether its pops, proms, opera, or choral, or cantata we want to share the joy of music by hosting various events
In the Berkshires we mainly engage the community inside an economic opportunity zone where classical music is not well understood
In the Boston area we work with community partners to
promote our mission for sharing classical music free of charge when possible
SymphonyHour.org is an all-volunteer organization
Our board members receive no compensation
and are our main supporters
Any donation received is used exclusively for general operations
and wider community outreach
If you find yourself unable to attend an upcoming concert
consider donating your tickets to our organization
Your tickets will not go to waste
our volunteer team will find
a music enthusiast who appreciates such a gift
If you would like to volunteer your time to SymphonyHour.org
