2020-2021 Season

Dear Orlando,

We are thrilled to announce the programming for the 2020-2021 Season of the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra. The music is sure to delight musical senses, and I am thrilled for you to hear some of the amazing guest artists we will have on stage in the 2020-2021 Season!

New in the 2020-2021 Season, is the expansion of the FAIRWINDS Classics Series from a five-concert series to six programs. We look forward to presenting these concerts on Saturday evenings at 7:30 p.m.

The Focus Series at The Plaza Live will celebrate the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s genius and weave his masterworks throughout the Season.

On the Pops Series, we breathe new life into our holiday performance, celebrate Gershwin in January, and present John Williams’ big-screen blockbusters in March. I’m delighted to take the podium in May to close out the Pops Series with a celebration of America and my wife, Grammy Award winner Aoife O’Donovan.

So much great music to share with you!

Yours,

Music Director

Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra
