Our journey together has begun to make great sound waves past season!  It is this energy and your presence that brings greater opportunities to the Tacoma Symphony!

I wish to thank you for your immense support and attendance! It is you that enables us to give greater meaning to our community and greater value to our citizens as well as visitors to the Puget Sound region.

Tacoma’s visible skyline is made up of buildings of bricks and mortar… but it has an invisible skyline too.  The TSO is not made of bricks and mortar but of people:  musicians, donors, patrons and volunteers.  Together, we have an important role to play in building our city’s invisible skyline.

Your support and presence translates into new and exciting events in the concert hall, but also fuels the Tacoma Symphony’s expanding presence in the community. We are committed to providing access to music for all people through our education and engagement programs, and have begun expanding performances opportunities throughout the greater Tacoma region.  Live music-making and special concert experiences cannot be replaced! We hope each and every concert will be an invaluable experience for you, your friends, co-workers and your families.

Personally, it has been a joy to explore Tacoma with my family  and make it my new musical home and part of our future.  It has also been a special joy has been getting to know many of you, the Tacoma Symphony’s community of patrons and supporters, vibrant arts scene  and the beautiful Puget Sound region!

May our performances this season resonate with you and embrace, bringing vibrancy to all parts of your life! Please continue to share your valuable feedback as we plan and renew our vision of the future!
