The Auburn Symphony Orchestra announced programming Monday for 2020-2021, the Symphony’s 24th season.

ASO is offering more concerts this season than ever before, according to a news release. Six symphony concerts will include four classical programs, the annual Holiday Celebration and a new pops concert. Three chamber concerts provide a more intimate music experience and four summer concerts kick off the season.

The Summer Series begins on June 21 at the Auburn International Farmers Market with a free performance by Pacific Coast Brass. Another free performance is scheduled for Game Farm Park on July 23.

Then on Aug. 6, enjoy your favorite food and beverages while you swing to wild tangos from Argentina, Mexico and Portugal during Around the World on Four Strings at Geaux Brewing. Jukebox String Quartet on Aug. 20 at Geaux Brewing is an eclectic program featuring melodies from iconic movies, Nirvana and Jimmy Hendrix, and a little classical music will be thrown in for good measure.

A new pops concert, Hollywood Takes Flight, will be a concert for the entire family on Oct. 10 at the Auburn Performing Arts Center. The orchestra will play music from Hollywood film scores including “Star Wars,” “Harry Potter,” “Back to the Future,” “How to Train Your Dragon,” “E.T. The Extraterrestrial,” and more.

Four classical concerts will feature Robert Schumann’s Symphony No. 4 in D minor, Antonio Vivaldi’s Four Seasons with concertmaster Emilie Choi, Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 6 in B minor, and Jean Sibelius’ Symphony No. 2 in D major. The annual Auburn Holiday Celebration program on Dec. 7 has something for everyone to enjoy.

Subscriptions and Summer Series tickets are on sale. Single tickets go on sale June 1. Subscriptions offer the best seats at the best price – 10% discount on 4-concert subscription or get 6 concerts for the price of 5 with a 6-concert package.

COVID-19 impact

In recognition of current uncertainty, ASO offers reassurance. If a concert needs to be cancelled due to health concerns, tickets will be honored at another performance or refunded if necessary. The health and safety of their patrons is the Symphony’s first priority.
