The premier classical orchestra North of Boston

2016 - 2017: OUR 36th SEASON

Donald Palma, Music Director and Conductor

Welcome to Symphony by the Sea!

Symphony by the Sea's 36th season once again features classics as well as some special treats to enhance your listening experience. Our "classical" orchestra is different from the typical "symphony orchestra" in that it is configured in size more like the orchestras that date back to the time of the early symphonic masters, e.g. Mozart, Haydn, Beethoven, allowing you to experience familiar classical compositions in the style that they were originally performed.

You will find the experience different from what you hear in concert halls with considerably larger ensembles. Our wonderful Music Director and Conductor, Donald Palma, has responded to your enthusiasm last season by arranging programs that once again will feature opera, less familiar classics and very familiar orchestral compositions. To enhance your listening, Maestro Palma will again offer brief commentary from the podium.

Once again, we invite you to greet old friends and make new ones while enjoying light refreshments during intermission. We look forward to seeing you and thank you for your continued support! Massachusetts Cultural Council
