Fall 2012 welcome and updates
The Stanford Symphony Orchestra is extremely excited to announce our 122nd season. This season marks a new chapter in SSO history, as we prepare to move into Stanford’s new Bing Concert Hall in the beginning of 2013. We are also pleased to announce a partnership with Stanford Live (formerly Stanford Lively Arts), as well as the Beethoven Project, a season-long celebration of Beethoven’s artistic genius. This ambitious project encompasses performances of all nine of Beethoven’s symphonies, as well as the entirety of his piano concertos (with Van Cliburn gold-medal pianist Jon Nakamatsu), and will be highlighted by a tour to Europe – in Beethoven’s footsteps – in the summer of 2013.
Your orchestra committee has been busy preparing for this exciting season. First, we’re pleased to announce this re-launched webpage, which has a brand new design. Thanks to Golf, Ben-han, and Dean, who have worked hard on this all summer; we hope that the new webpage is easy to access and makes it convenient to find information. We’ve also been planning our annual fall retreat, and getting ready for our first rehearsal – we can’t wait to get started with everything!
Whether you are returning to SSO as a musician, thinking about joining us in this historical season, or looking to enjoy our concerts this year, we look forward to a thrilling season!
