Holyoke Civic Symphony

The Sound Choice!

The Holyoke Civic Symphony is made up of talented amateur musicians and students who perform an exciting mixture of styles and composers. Our mission is to make orchestral music accessible to Holyoke and the surrounding communities. Three of our four concerts each season are free of charge.

Our 2023-2024 season is entitled, “The Brass Menagerie.” Each concert will feature an amazing soloist on an instrument of the brass family: horn, trumpet, trombone and tuba.

Each concert will also include favorites from the orchestral repertoire, such as Brahms' Third Symphony in October, Bizet's L'Arlesienne Suite in December, Tchaikovsky's Sixth Symphony in March, and Stravinsky's Firebird in May.

Our concerts are welcoming, unpretentious, and fun for all ages. Come as you are and enjoy the music. We look forward to seeing you in the audience!
