RCSO Launches Ambitious Summer Virtual Series

Concert halls and other live venues may still be closed due to COVID, but the RCSO remains dedicated to its mission to create exciting symphonic music experiences for the mid-Ohio valley.  With the generous support of the Marietta Community Foundation, as well as several corporate sponsors, the River Cities will host a series of Facebook Live events, starting in June, and extending into August.  A mix of local and national musicians, playing in both solos and trios, will demonstrate both high-level musicianship, and an unprecedented level of audience interaction through question & answer sessions.  We're excited to bring the dynamic unscripted experience of a live orchestral performance back to the area, and look forward to your participation and support.

Contact Mac Lichterman, Symphony Board President, if you have any questions, or would like to find out how you can sponsor one or more of of these concert events.
