Two thousand people gather to hear classical music under the stars!  It's a great way to introduce youngsters to the classical tradition.

Symphor!a will kick off the Hamilton Village Concerts in the Park on Thursday, July 10th at 7:30 pm. Before the concert, the Earlville Opera House will host an Instrument Zoo for children and families starting at 6:30pm.  The musician-owned and operated Symphor!a is the newest name for the artists of the Syracuse Symphony Orchestra. It is now modeled after the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra, based in New Orleans, which is in its 24th season.  The concert in Hamilton is the first of the summer series of concerts that the symphony plans to play in central New York.  Make your summer plans to include this beautiful evening in the historic setting of the village green of Hamilton!

The definition of symphoria: “The feeling of euphoria one gets after hearing an amazing piece of classical music, whether string or wind ensemble, full orchestra or otherwise.” (Urban Dictionary)

Enjoy a musical journey with the Symphor!a under the stars with the sounds of summer!  Come early to enjoy a picnic in the park or Hamilton’s local restaurants!  No tickets are necessary for these free events. Bring a blanket or lawn chair!  This concert will go on rain or shine; the rain location is  the Colgate Memorial Chapel on Alumni Road of the Colgate University Campus.  The Instrument Zoo will be in the Chapel too..

More information about the orchestra:

“Symphoria is a diverse group of talented musicians. We hail from Poland and Pennsylvania, Texas and Bulgaria, Manitoba, Missouri and many other places around the globe, but we live and work in Syracuse and Central New York.  And, we love to perform!”

Symphoria is the orchestra of Musical Associates of CNY, a not-for-profit organization made up of nearly 50 members of the former Syracuse Symphony Orchestra. Our musicians have attended the very best music schools in the country. Music is our passion.  Despite its financial woes, the Syracuse Symphony Orchestra was considered to be one of America’s top 50 orchestras, having played at Carnegie Hall several times.  “We’re here to stay because we believe that music makes a difference in our community. Good music provides the region with cultural opportunities that enhance the quality of Central New York life. We’ve been making music all of our lives and we’re committed to keeping symphonic music alive in Central New York.”
