Symphony Opens 72nd Season


By Laurel L. Scott



Nov. 6, marks the long-awaited opening concert of the San Angelo Symphony’s 72nd season. “Women in Art & Music” began at 7 p.m. and features the 50-plus member orchestra in its first Murphy Hall performance after a two-year shutdown due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Symphony Music Director Hector Guzman said this will be a very special concert.

“For the first time in almost two years, the symphony is able to perform live and together,” Guzman said. “It is one of the greatest blessings.”

The performance will feature music composed by women and a soloist on piano, Daniela Liebman. The 19-year-old Guadalajara native has performed with more than 25 orchestras on four continents. A special guest will be local artist Julie Raymond, CEO and founder of San Angelo’s Art in Uncommon Places. The nonprofit is responsible for projects such as Paintbrush Alley. Raymond will paint a concert-inspired work on stage during the performance.

Tickets were available at the box office in the lobby of City Hall, 72 W. College Ave., and by calling 325-658-5877. Seats for tonight’s performance are $35 for adults, $30 for seniors, and $20 for children, students and the military. The Murphy Performance Hall is inside City Hall. Handicap-accessible entrances are on the east and west sides of the building.

Upcoming symphony performances include “A Yuletide Celebration” on Dec. 4, “Storytellers of Jazz” on Jan. 29, “The Wild, Wild West” on March 5, and the First Financial Bank Family Pops Concert featuring Michael Martin Murphey on March 26.
