New office, subscription blitz for Symphony Orchestra

Stratford Gazette

The Stratford Symphony Orchestra is moving into a new office in the United Centre on Erie Street, where volunteers will be on hand next week, Sept. 4-6, to provide information about the upcoming season.

Subscription packages and tickets to individual concerts will be available for purchase as well.

Season 8 begins with a concert on Friday, Sept. 21st at Knox Church. The concert, entitled Stratford: A Musical Portrait. will be a celebration of Stratford’s cultural and agricultural bounty held in conjunction with Ontario’s premier culinary festival, Savour Stratford.

A quartet of orchestra musicians will be featured in the opening ceremonies of Savour Stratford, which begins at 5 p.m. on Sept. 21 at the bandshell on Lakeside Drive. The orchestra’s horn quartet will play the Hansel and Gretel Overture by Engelbert Humperdinck. Orchestra music directors Berthold Carriere and Barbara Young will conduct the concert, which features some of Carriere’s own compositions.

Carriere, well-known for his work with the Stratford Shakespeare Festival, has volunteered his time and considerable talents as music director for the orchestra’s eighth season.

Young, who assisted Carriere for many years at the Festival, is also supporting the orchestra as its associate music director.

Tickets for the Sept. 21 concert are also available at Anything Grows and Fanfare Books in Stratford, and Stewart Books in St. Marys.
