Symphony New Brunswick will reach deep into the resilience of its musicians and our music history to present a 2020-2021 season for you!
We will adjust our performances to our ever-changing world and welcome audiences into the safe environments prepared by the theatres. We will exercise all necessary cautions on our side of the stage and we will work hard to prepare and perform top quality music that will help lift the audience out of this state of doubts and confusions. Because that’s what we are here for! And that’s what music is all about!
We sincerely hope that the season from 2021 will revert to plan and that we can have a large orchestra on stage and a full house. However, from October through December, we have created a plan that celebrates our NB musicians, features our prime Camerata orchestra and introduces three new candidates for the Music Director position to our audiences.
Meanwhile, we will continue to present our popular Virtuoso series with some venue changes to accommodate distancing regulations.
We are so proud of the talent that is here in NB and are very much looking forward to being part of –
