Toledo, OH (PRWEB) January 31, 2014
The Toledo Symphony Orchestra (TSO), along with principle conductor, Stefan Sanderling, is proud to announce the return of the popular ProAm Concert, February 21st at 7:30 p.m. The orchestra is delighted to be playing side-by-side with local adult musicians from northwest Ohio and southern Michigan on the beautiful Toledo Museum of Art Peristyle stage.
To date, over 70 musicians have signed up to participate, and there are still several days left in the registration period. The new deadline is Monday, February 3. Interested adult amateur musicians can register online at http://www.toledosymphony.com/events/proam/ or by e-mailing proam(at)toledosymphony(dot)com.
The orchestra members were thrilled with the results of the first ProAm event two years ago, and we are looking forward to a second round. It is a great example of how we strive to work side-by-side with our community to preserve and sustain a tradition of great music-making and exceptional teaching, says Kathleen Carroll, President and CEO.
Adult amateur musicians may not make their living as musicians, but find lasting value and satisfaction in continued participation in music.
This year's program is challenging, but features a wide variety of music.

Brahms Academic Festival Overture
Bach Little Fugue in G Minor
