Welcome to the Deep River Symphony Orchestra

We are very excited about our 2015-2016 season, and we hope that you will be too! Our Music Director, Peter Morris, has planned a varied season of five concerts, which features professional soloists at three of our concerts. Our season opens in October when we welcome pianist Mauro Bertoli from Ottawa in performance of Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 5. We thank the Valley Artisan Co-op for their sponsorship of this concert. In December, we will be performing popular favourites from musicals ranging from Les Misérables to Carousel, and in January we welcome back the Deep River Choral Group to perform with us at our Baroque matinee. In February, violinist Megan Jones will return to Deep River to perform Kabalevsky’s Violin Concerto. Our season closes in May when we welcome back soprano, Kathleen Radke who will be performing arias by Puccini and others. We thank Cherrystone Management for their sponsorship of this concert. Please see the season brochure for full details of these concerts. For details on subscription packages as well as how to purchase single tickets, please visit the subscription page. We would like to thank our season subscribers, past, present, and future, for your support which enables the DRSO to continue, with the 2015-2016 season marking our 63rd year of providing orchestral music to the Deep River area!

The DRSO would also like to thank all of the individuals who work very hard to ensure that the season is a success. These individuals include our Music Director, board members, players, both amateur and professional, local music teachers who encourage their students to join the orchestra, and parents who support their children’s musical accomplishments. We also thank all of those private citizens who make donations and our corporate sponsors, as well as being grateful for the financial support of the Ontario Arts Council. Finally, we sincerely thank all past and present audience members, for without you, there would be no orchestra. We hope that you will enjoy the upcoming season!

We look forward to sharing music together in Childs Auditorium. As of the 2014-2015 season, evening concerts now begin at 7:30pm.
