A Message From The President

From the President
After a year like none other – we welcome you to a new season with your San Angelo Symphony! “The Renaissance Season” is
aptly named as we once again look forward to the joy of great music following the many challenges and disruptions of the past year.
The good news is that the San Angelo Symphony is ready to entertain you with wonderful, live in-person performances. The
season starts off in November with classic symphonic music based on the innovative theme, “Women in Art & Music.” The young and talented pianist, Daniela Liebman, will perform and local artist, Julie Raymond, will paint live for us while being inspired by the great music.
December will once again feature the beloved Christmas Concert, this year entitled, “A Yuletide Celebration.” Along with the very merry singalong, and the fan-favorite seasonal program, two local and much-loved soloists, Meagan Hunnicutt and Justin DeLoach, will perform – and help lead us in the singalong!
After the busyness of the holiday season is past, when we are looking for somewhere to go and something fun to do during the short days of January, your symphony is offering “Storytellers of Jazz.” This “cool” concert will feature six special performers, as well as the wonderful sound of our symphony. Featuring songs like Skylark, a Nat King Cole Medley, and Unforgettable, this performance promises to “warm” our hearts even in the dead of winter.
In March, a much-loved theme returns as your symphony takes us back to “The Wild, Wild West.” If music from Oklahoma, Silverado, The Magnificent Seven, and Shenandoah doesn’t get your toes tapping and your spurs jingling, then you might not be as West Texan as you think you are!
March is doubly great because the Family Pops concert, traditionally held in April, will take place at the end of the month. Your symphony will be hosting Michael Martin Murphy in concert! A multiple Grammy nominee, holder of six gold albums, and a career topping the charts in pop, country, bluegrass, and western music – MMM in March promises to be a great evening in the Junell Center.
As you look through this program, make sure to note the generous sponsors whose support makes it possible for San Angelo to enjoy the benefits of great music. If you know our sponsors, our corporate partners, or our program advertisers, be sure to thank them for their part in bringing wonderful programming and music to our corner of West Texas.
Additionally, the symphony sponsors several wonderful parties and fundraisers throughout the year, and the dates and tickets to those events are available at the symphony office. It takes many hands to make possible the quality of music and programming we enjoy under the direction of our outstanding Maestro, Hector Guzmán.
With Courtney Mahaffey as Executive Director and the support of a great Board of Directors and symphony staff, I know we will have a great 2021-2022 season!
