Past Performances

“Music is the Shorthand of Emotion.”

~ Leo Tolstoy

Take a trip down memory lane to see which musical pieces have been performed over the years by the orchestra and chorus.

Please note that the Christmas Gala performances only list the musical pieces played and/or sung by the orchestra and chorus.  Other community groups’ performance pieces are not listed.

We’re still working on listing performance pieces.  (After all, we do have a couple decades worth!)
