From Maria Larionoff, Artistic Director

Dear Friends of SOR,

The final notes of our 21/22 season have been played, but the joy of reuniting on stage and performing is still fresh in our hearts! What a magical season it was–from the soulful sounds of Amit Peled and his engaging “Meet and Greet” conversation with board member Tom Cook, to the dazzling virtuosity of Stephanie Chase we had a full season of thought-provoking and magnificent music to remember.

Thank you for joining us for our return to the concert stage with our full SOR orchestra. We are grateful to you all for your continued support and enthusiasm. How meaningful it is to make music together and see our full audience back in the hall!

Our SOR family welcomes a new member to our organization–Karen Hendrickson, who is taking over this summer as our new orchestra coordinator. We are thrilled to have her join us. Dari Quirk, whom you know from the last eight seasons, has moved to a full-time job at UM, and we celebrate her success and wish her well.

Plans for our 22/23 season are well underway with an enticing roster of world-class soloists including violinist Ani Kavafian, flutist Lorna McGhee, and pianist Adam Neiman. Our pre-season, free Bonner Park concert will be on August 25th—bring a picnic and come enjoy some wonderful string music on a summer evening!

Our website will be updated throughout the coming months with new musical selections, videos and interviews as well as details on our upcoming season, so please do keep in touch.

Have a great summer, and we look forward to seeing you in the Fall!

Musically yours,
Maria Larionoff
Artistic Director, SOR
