EMSO supended its 2020-2021 concert season due to the COVID-19 pandemic

Good News! The 2021-2022 Concert Season is coming!

East Metro Symphony Orchestra’s Board has started planning for the 2021-2022 Concert Season!  With hopes for the success of the continued efforts to distribute vaccines to communities, EMSO anticipates the orchestra will be able to enter fall 2021 with bright plans for a fabulous year!

EMSO is working on what the next concert season will be, with hopes that it will feel familiar and welcoming but also knowing that some aspects of the season may need to be a little different. We plan on again having four main concerts, with three of these concerts having associated Symphonies for Seniors performances at senior residences.  

All concerts are tentative at this point, and EMSO hopes to confirm plans for the season by July 2021.
