prome818Music Director Eric Hansen and The Prometheus Symphony Orchestra present our concert series for the 2013-2014 , featuring well-established favorites as well as innovative works that are deserving of concert performance. We frequently feature local artists as solo performers to create the uniquely effective and powerful interplay of single instrument and orchestral ensemble.

The all-volunteer community-based Orchestra, located in Oakland, California, is devoted to the rehearsal and performance of master works of the symphonic repertoire. Founded in 1965, the Orchestra is currently associated with Merritt College of Oakland, California, a campus of the Peralta Community College District. This is our forty-ninth season of offering concerts to the Oakland Community.
