Dear Valued Aiken Symphony Orchestra Patron:
A new season will soon be upon us and it will be one brimming with joy and optimism!
It goes without saying that the past year upended so many of the plans we each had made for ourselves, loved ones, travel, the arts, and beyond. Thanks to the efforts of so many, we were able to host three in-person concerts and offered the ability to livestream two of them – a first for us! We are so pleased to be able to plan what is sure to be a welcome return to the stage for our full symphony in 2021-2022!
We have a full season prepared for you, including the return of the amazing Hugh Panaro at our spring “Bravo Broadway” Pops! Our season subscriber brochures will be mailed in early May. If you want to ensure you receive one, please send a request with your mailing address to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We want to say a special thank you to all patrons who supported your ASO by donating generously. Fundraising efforts continue to demand our attention since ticket sales alone cover less than half the costs of running a professional symphony orchestra. Any gift you can include helps us continue to keep the music ON in Aiken! Our board is passionate about bringing you a season that will bring you beautiful music to enjoy and add joy to your life.
We hope to see each of you in October when our new season is scheduled to begin. On behalf of the Aiken Symphony Orchestra, other members of the Board of Directors, our musicians, maestro, and staff, thank you in advance for your continued support.
Thomas Herlong, President
