After several months of reflecting, collaborating with our artistic teams and exploring new ways to present professional orchestral music, the Hamilton Philharmonic Orchestra (HPO) is excited to announce plans for a reimagined 20-21 season.
In order to present performances by their musicians while ensuring the safety of their audiences, the HPO’s 20-21 Season is focused on offering new musical experiences through online broadcasts of live performances and music appreciation engagements.
These performances will feature HPO musicians and Music Director Gemma New throughout the season. If health and safety guidelines allow, mainstage and community performances will become available for live audiences, and all will be managed with social distancing and safety protocols for the care of patrons, musicians and staff. The Orchestra’s outreach programming will also continue online to support music education, wellbeing and community-based initiatives.
Music Director Gemma New will continue to lead the artistic vision of the HPO and along with the organization’s artistic team, including Composer-in-Residence Abigail Richardson-Schulte, are putting the finishing touches on the Orchestra’s 20-21 season. The organization states that supporting their musicians and staff is a priority and they will continue to provide consistent work for their musicians and employ their staff team in the season ahead.
Complete season details including performance dates and repertoire will be released in early August.
