Conductor Rob Davis50 years! The Southwest Washington Symphony turns 50 this season and you’re invited to the party. We have a season full of fun, inspiring, and exciting music planned - as well as a few special additions to mark this momentous year.

The change I’m most excited about is that all symphony concerts will be FREE! That’s right, free and open admission for anyone who’d like to come and enjoy fantastic live music produced and performed in our own community, all season long. We hope that this will allow even more families, students, seniors, and new patrons to enjoy our concerts and be inspired.

Because venues, music purchases, advertising, and other operating costs have not been offered to us for free this year, in light of our celebration, we will ask for and gratefully accept donations at every concert. And in order to accommodate the busy schedules of our audience members, we will offer two performances (evening and daytime) of our Christmas, Winter and Spring Concerts. Thank you for your ongoing support as we celebrate 50 years of fantastic music!

Sincerely, Rob Davis
Music Director and Conductor Southwest Washington Symphony

Dear Symphony
As I was walking out of the concert hall there was a mom with a couple of boys ( about 12) a few steps ahead of me. One of the boys complained, "mom l don't want to go yet." Mom said " We are going!" The boy said, "But I want to talk to the musicians."

His comments made me smile and I hope it makes everyone in the orchestra smile too.
