“Imagine if EVERY time you went to the cinema, the movie was perfectly crafted, beautifully written and brilliantly performed…was breathtaking with excitement, heartbreaking with emotion and completely satisfying. Well, that’s why I love going to a symphony concert. I love classical music and we are so fortunate to have such an outstanding symphony orchestra in our town.” ~William Gallagher
