TSO releases concert dates

The Toccoa Symphony Orchestra has announced concert dates for the 2017-18 concert season and its annual membership drive.

This year marks the 40th anniversary of the symphony which made its debut in the summer of 1977.

The concert season will begin on Sunday, Dec. 3, with the Christmas concert.

The Toccoa Community Choir will join the orchestra singing holiday favorites, and the Currahee Artists’ Guild will host an art show and sale before the concert.

The show is slated to begin at 2 p.m. and run until 4 p.m. the concert will begin promptly at 4 p.m.

The late winter concert is planned for March 4 followed by the spring concert on May 6, 2018.

All concerts will be held at the Garrison Auditorium at the Georgia Baptist Conference Center.

The Symphony has remained viable through the generosity of member supporters and corporate sponsors.

The annual membership drive raises funds necessary for the Symphony to purchase orchestral scores, cover concert operating expenses, compensate out-of-town musicians and guest artists and most importantly, keeps the music alive for all to enjoy.

Annual membership levels are: Platinum Plus – over $250; Platinum – $250; Gold – $125; Silver – $75; Family – $50; Individual – $25; members are entitled to season tickets to the three annual concerts for themselves and their immediate family.

TSO president Jim Wade said, quote “We should all take pride in having such a wonderful symphony in our hometown for 40 years…we thank the community for their past patronage and hope you will continue to treat us with your generous support for 40 more years.”
