Review for New Haven Symphony Orchestra, New Haven, CT, USA
My experience is new in my role as a NHSO Board Member, but my experience of enjoying their artistic talents goes back to my early years in New Haven. As the fourth oldest Symphony Orchestras in the Country, the NHSO has shown not only endurance but creativity and resourcefulness in it's artistic presentations. It has had too! New Haven is a small city, but the NHSO has been one of its large artistic organizations along with Yale and its artistic functions. This artistic competition between Yale and NHSO has made both better. However, NHSO has to compete with, obviously, a small fraction of the assets of Yale. My point is that NHSO'S artistic talent has been tested over time and in many macro and micro economic conditions. NHSO'S ability to continue draw subscribers is due to the dedicated conductors, orchestra, and staff. Any monetary support in these trying economic times will help!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
its performances, involvement with community youth orchestras, and out reach to new communities in Connecticut.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
try to be more focused!
