Great Performances

Maestro Grandis looks forward to this “side by side” opportunity for the WiIliam and Mary musicians--undergraduates, graduate and community members--to share a stand, rehearse and perform with the VCO’s experienced professional players.

Now entering its 85th season, the William & Mary Symphony Orchestra’s mission is to grow through performances of great orchestral literature and to contribute to the artistic community of the College and beyond.

The March concert will provide an additional opportunity for two winners of the William and Mary student concerto competition to appear as soloists with the combined orchestras.
