A program of extremes begins with Walker’s superb lament for strings and ends with an epic celebration of Mayan culture, utilizing 13 different percussion instruments! Grammy-nominated pianist Michelle Cann’s (above) meteoric rise to stardom happened while we were talking to her – her Price’s Concerto with Philadelphia became a sensation. Our assent with Cann adds another jewel here: Strauss’s Burleske.

Bringing a live orchestra experience

to where YOU are since 1967.

The Rogue Valley Symphony has had the pleasure of performing in Southern Oregon since 1967, when we had one venue in the Medford Mid-High School auditorium and 55 players. Now with more than 70 players and three venues in Ashland, Medford, and Grants Pass, the Rogue Valley Symphony is celebrating its 55th season with hope, excitement, and unforgettable music.

Check our what our patrons are saying about Masterworks 4: Songs of the Steppes:

“The soloist was beyond words. It is very hard to express what a musician like that can bring forth in the music and for the audience. All the adjectives fall short of expressing the depth of the experience.”

“Each time I come to a performance I am stunned and pleased at how Martin has taken the orchestra to such heights. Our symphony orchestra is so outstanding and extraordinary that they rival any symphony I have experienced (and I have been fortunate to see many in my travels). World Class for sure. How blessed we are to have Martin and this orchestra in Southern Oregon! I am grateful beyond measure. Thank You!!”

“After experiencing the mastery of Sitkovetsky in Ashland on Friday, I decided I couldn’t let him leave the valley without hearing him play again, so I also attended the concert in Grants Pass on Sunday. PHENOMENOL!!!”

“I have enjoyed ALL of the soloists this year, but Alexander was just the epitome of the word ARTIST – virtuosically prepared, seemingly without ego and expressing the very heart of the music itself. Just a rare afternoon. “

Rogue Valley Symphony is hyped for the rest of our season – full of musical blockbusters and perhaps some pieces you’ve never heard, it’s a season for both seasoned symphony-goers and brand new listeners!
