A Message Portraits of Sara Ioannides Hartman and familyfrom the Music Director:

Our new ten-year Vision paints a picture of what your Symphony Tacoma aspires to become in the hearts and lives of the community.  We strive for programs that delight an ever-expanding and diverse audience, and that engage and transform both performers and listeners.

May the 2016-2017 Season move us far along in realizing this Vision!  In planning these concerts, I have chosen guest artists who will uplift and inspire us, and selected music to provide just the right balance between the unusual and striking, the familiar and cherished.

It is our hope that these concerts captivate, relax, inspire, stretch, intrigue and satisfy you—from start to finish!
