The new Brown County Music Center located in Nashville, Ind., just announced the Bloomington Symphony Orchestra (Sunday, December 1) annual holiday show Celebrate the Season as part of its inaugural lineup this year, a fun and festive program with holiday favorites, an audience sing-along and a visit from jolly old St. Nick himself.
About the Bloomington Symphony Orchestra
Now in its 50th season, the Bloomington Symphony Orchestra is one of Bloomington’s most enduring arts organizations—a musical home for local residents who want to keep their love of music alive. The BSO provides performance opportunities and a real sense of community for musicians from several counties across south-central Indiana. The organization also provides ongoing educational opportunities for audiences, local students, and the community at large. The 85 musicians currently on the BSO’s roster range in age from 15 to nearly 90, including a string bass player who has been with the orchestra since its first rehearsal in 1969. Nearly every type of profession is represented, too—school teachers, physicians, small-business owners, professors, sales clerks, bakers, and students, just to name a few. The BSO season runs from August through May and includes concerts, special events, and outreach opportunities. From light-hearted holiday pops shows and children’s concerts to the great masterpieces of orchestral music, the programs educate, enlighten, and entertain audiences of every age and background.
