Welcome to our Golden Season!
Dear RVS friends, fans and supporters,
Welcome to our Golden Season! 50 years is a special milestone in the life of an organization. Above all, this is a celebration of your involvement with our orchestra. Together we have built a dynamic, expanding organization that is bringing in world class soloists, giving a platform to accomplished musicians in our midst, pleasing and challenging you with our programming, developing new creative concepts, providing music education to an ever-growing number of children, and, above all, bringing the joy of music to all of you.
We have commissioned five new compositions for our 50th to make this celebration even more special. This is a project unprecedented in its scope for an orchestra of our size. However, it reflects not only our ambition — it is my sincere wish to make symphonic music an important voice in the reflection of our own time. I hope that you will enjoy these freshly imagined sounds as much as I will!
You are our community and our raison d’être. Every time I step on the conducting podium to take a bow, I look around and think, we have only started. We are young at 50! Thank you for that feeling.
Now let the festivities begin!
