Would you consider a gift to the SSO?
Funding the Orchestra's performances and other activities is a constant challenge. Even though we're operating in the black (no small thing), we look forward to increasing the amount we can pay the musicians, broadening flexibility for acquisition of music scores for performances, and deepening our outreach to the community in general and youth in particular.

Thank you so much!

Coming up:
Rant Maggie Rant returns to the SSO's
annual Celtic concert on Saturday, January 26, at 7:30 p.m.
Mélanie Léonard, music director for the Sudbury Symphony Orchestra, will be guest conductor.


Volunteers needed for SSO activities

For information, contact the SSO office. 
Big or small, we need them all! 
The violin and
the double bass:
The top and bottom of the orchestra's string section 
All will be revealed at the SSO's
Cushion Concert Sunday, January 20 

Bring yourself, your children, your grandchildren, your great grandchildren (and your friends) to the SSO's  
fun-filled celebration of the orchestra's biggest and smallest string instruments on Sunday, January 20, at the Stratford Library beginning at 2:00 p.m. It's FREE. 
And YES, a girl (Barb Julian) will show you how she plays the bass fiddle that's taller than she is! And Kirby Julian will show you lots you didn't know about the violin. (Truth be told, a lot of people call it a fiddle.)  
Hear solos and duets, some with keyboard and guitar accompaniments. There'll be singing, dancing and lots of other activities. You don't want to miss it!
So share this Con Spirito with family and friends. Just click  
(NOTE: The library opens at 2:00, so if you come early you'll be waiting outside. If you come at 2:00 or a few minutes after, don't worry. There'll be plenty of room for you in the library auditorium and we'll wait for everyone to come in.)
