2019-20 Concert Season

COVID-19 has changed everything for  many of us.  We deeply regret that we must cancel our May concert as we did for March.  We plan to reschedule the Stravinsky and Hoover works for next season. Check back for information on our 2020-21 season as it develops.

We miss performing for our audience as we are sure you miss hearing us.  We look forward to greeting you all next season.

Prometheus Symphony Orchestra is an all-volunteer organization and relies on your contributions of any size to help offset the loss of concert revenue.  Anything you can contribute to help defray our costs is greatly appreciated.
