2014 - 2015 Concert Season


"Thayer Symphony Orchestra: Serving Central Massachusetts for over 40 Years"

"Central Massachusetts' Premiere Orchestra"

Thayer Symphony, your symphony


Greetings from Music Director

Dear Friends,

I am very excited to have been selected as the new Music Director for Thayer Symphony Orchestra and am eager to present you with exciting and inspiring concerts in this inaugural season. The future for this ensemble is bright; full of collaborative efforts within the community and great opportunities for current and new audience members to fall in love with the orchestra all over again.

The Thayer Symphony Orchestra is an important cultural institution of central Massachusetts, bringing classical music to the community for over 40 years. I aim to build upon this tradition by collaborating with local artists, featuring your talented TSO musicians, presenting young talented instrumentalists, and international guests.

This season concerts are highlighted with fine soloists, great composers, and a multitude of surprises. Our Holiday concert on December 13th will showcase the Worcester Children's Chorus, a great way to introduce some of our youngest guests to the joy of music. This concert will also feature the world premier of an Aria for Cuckoo Clocks as well as a surprise guest for the narration of the classic tale 'Twas the Night Before Christmas.

In February's classical concert, we will perform Ravel's famed piece Bolero, performed with the largest snare drum in the world created just for this TSO concert. The Guinness Book of World Records is informed - you won't want to miss it! Also featured will be Mozart's Overture from Don Giovanni, Kaiser Waltz by Johann Strauss, and other well known works certain to make this a Valentines Day treat.

To close the season, the TSO will present a thematic concert: Sun, Moon and Stars. This concert will feature both classical masterpieces and an array of space themed favorites from popular movies and television.

Join us for the 2014-2015 TSO season to experience one of central Massachusetts cultural treasures. I look forward to sharing my enthusiasm for these great works with 'you and yours' and am excited to be a part of your community.


Roderick MacDonald
