The Lexington Symphony is a group of dedicated musicians who share a passion for their music and for exacting standards of performance. In its 15th season, the orchestra maintains a unique blend of grass-roots spirit and professionalism, devoted to sharing classical music with all. With an emphasis on accessibility, the group offers great programming, superb performances, easy parking, and affordable tickets.
The Lexington Symphony performs a subscription series of Saturday evening and Sunday afternoon concerts each year at Cary Hall in Lexington, including Holiday Pops and an April event linked to the town's historic Patriots' Day celebration. As one audience member put it, Lexington Symphony is "...wonderful because I hear great music beautifully performed, I can easily park, and I'm home in 5 minutes."
Lexington Symphony members connect to the community with events ranging from the biennial Children’s Workshop and Concert to open rehearsals and workshops with world-class artists. In 2009, the orchestra launched an interactive program for third graders called “Orchestrating Kids Through Classics.” In addition, the Lexington Symphony is a partner in Music Matters, a program organized by the MTA and WCRB, which brings Lexington Symphony musicians to elementary schools throughout Massachusetts.
• Highly acclaimed talent - Music Director Jonathan McPhee is a leading musical figure in New England
• Locally accessible - Performances in beautiful Cary Hall located right in Lexington Center
• Entertainment for all - Family-friendly programming
• "...a suburban orchestra like the Lexington Symphony is capable of a performance to attract the attention of those who live closer to Symphony Hall. Even if the BSO season were in full swing, last Saturday’s program would have been worth the trip." - Boston Phoenix review of September 2008 concert
