As a result of the current health crisis, the ECSO announces small ensemble performances in various locations in the near future through the program titled “Soundscape”. This will encompass non-traditional offerings that give patrons access to our musicians and orchestral music in a safe environment.

Common Ground performances:
In addition to the public performances that are scheduled above, the ECSO will also present unique opportunities for patrons to hear a piece performed in scheduled solo exposure. Modeled after other symphonies’ one-to-one offerings, this is a unique and safe way to hear our musicians like never before.
ECSO Subscribers and donors who supported between July 1, 2019 and June 30, 2020 will have access to these for free and there is a suggested donation for others of $5. Sign up by visiting the ECSO website (www.ectsymphony.com) to obtain the link to a survey which will help match you with a musician.
Founded in 1946, the mission of the Eastern Connecticut Symphony Orchestra is to inspire, educate, and connect our communities through live orchestral music.
