For the first time in three years, the Peterborough Symphony Orchestra is offering a full five-concert season in 2022-23.

The season opens Nov. 5 with “Welcome Back,” which combines Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony with guest soloist Snow Bai performing a Canadian composition on the traditional Chinese erhu.

A tradition returns on December 10 with “A Holiday Welcome” of classical and popular seasonal music featuring baritone James Westman.

Celebrate Valentine’s Day a little earlier with “An Intimate Welcome” on February 4 – a concert of delights for small ensembles.

On April 1, the PSO is ready for “Welcome to Spring” with Sibelius and Tchaikovsky, featuring virtuoso pianist Alexander Panizza.

To cap off the season, the PSO will share the stage with Poet Laureate Sarah Lewis for ‘Welcome to the Dance’ – an evening of words and music including ‘Symphonic Dances from West Side Story’.

All performances begin at 7:30 p.m. and take place at the Showplace Performance Center.

Season passes are now available with prices ranging from $105 to $235 depending on seating and only $10 per concert for student passes. Regular single tickets will go on sale in mid-July with prices ranging from $33 to $55 and student single tickets at just $12.

A new initiative for this season is the “Rush Ticket” program. On the day of the concert only, subject to availability, tickets will be available online for only $20.
