These concerts were started during the pandemic as a thank you to our community for its support of the SMSO. They are free to the public, however, if you are so moved, please consider making a tax-deductible contribution to help ensure the fiscal health of the SMSO. These concerts are supported, in part, by an award from the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs and the National Endowment for the Arts.

The SMSO hopes the community will enjoy these rousing orchestral offerings Thursdays in June at the library.
