The Plainfield Symphony Orchestra Announces Its 103rd Season

The Plainfield Symphony Orchestra, under the baton of our acclaimed music director Charles Prince, invites you to share in a musical journey as we explore old favorites, discover new works and experience pieces from near and far, real and imaginary.

The 103rd season opens on October 15, 2022 with “Once Upon a Time,” showcasing two works from the imaginary world. Tapiola, Op. 112, "Realm of Tapio,” is a tone poem by the Finnish composer Jean Sibelius. Also featured will be the well-known Scheherazade, Op. 35, a symphonic suite composed by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov and based on The One Thousand and One Nights.

On November 19, 2022, the audience favorite Pops Concert, entitled “Life is a Cabaret,” will include works by George Gershwin, Kurt Weill, Cole Porter and other surprises. The soloists will be returning critically acclaimed tenor Brian Cheney along with musical and operetta performer Monica Arnó.

Our annual free afternoon Family Concert will take place on January 28, 2023. “All That Jazz” will feature a collaboration with students from the Plainfield Academy for the Arts & Advanced Studies (PAAAS) magnet school.

“The Maestro and Apprentice 1792” is the theme for the March 25, 2023 concert. Haydn’s Sinfonia Concertante in B flat major will showcase several PSO principal players: Evelyn Estava, Jameson Platte, Nancy Vanderslice and Lee Doswell. Beethoven’s Symphony No. 3 in Eb major, Op. 35 (“Eroica”) will conclude this uplifting program.

The season will conclude on April 29, 2023 with a “Tchaikovsky Festival.” His Overture/Fantasy Romeo and Juliet will be presented along with Symphony No. 5 in E minor, Op. 64, a journey from darkness to light.

Wonder. Pathos. Joy. Experience an array of human emotions during this upcoming unforgettable Plainfield Symphony season where great music is brought to life. Season tickets are now on sale and can be purchased at
