Dear Aiken Symphony Orchestra Patrons:
We are pleased to unveil the 2020-2021 season to you, our valued patrons!  Our Board is passionate about providing you with a spectacular season of classical music and this season is no different. 

We are also very mindful of the current health/financial environment and how much it has affected each of us.    That being said, we know that our patrons’ love of symphonic music is strong and that, circumstances willing, we will be up and running with the safety of our musicians, patrons, soloists, and staff in mind, effective October 18.  

Lastly, I want you to know how much we appreciate you and how thankful we are for your previous support.  For those of you able to continue your financial support of the ASO, especially at this precarious time, we sincerely appreciate your donations.  We hope to see each and every one of you when we open our season on October 18!
Thomas H. Herlong, President, Aiken Symphony Orchestra Board of Directors, musicians, and staff
