2017-18 SEASON

THE UNIVERSITY OF SOUTHERN MISSISSIPPI
SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA

From music director, Jay Dean

Next year will be the 98th season of The University of Southern Mississippi Symphony Orchestra. It will also be my 30th year at Southern Miss. I am looking forward to this coming year as being one of the best yet.

Tickets for current season ticket holders will go on sale on May 5th. You will have until June 14th to renew your seats for next season. All renewals must be received by the Southern Miss Ticket Office on, or before June 14th in order to retain your current seats, or request upgrades, if available.

On June 15th all season tickets go on sale. On July 17th all single-event tickets will go on sale to the general public.

Our 98th season begins in September with Continental Connections featuring Respighi’s Pines of Rome, and world famous Russian violinist Alexandre Brussilovsky performing Brahms’ Violin Concerto. This concert will be followed in October and November by the incredible production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Phantom of the Opera. In November, you will be treated to Tango Rendezvous, a fabulous evening featuring virtuoso violinist, Alejandro Drago, and in December we will once again join forces with the Southern Miss Choral program in our annual Holiday Choral Spectacular.

Our Future Stars Concert in February will feature Richard Strauss’s fabulous Suite from Der Rosenkavalier, as well as winners of the annual William T. Gower Concerto Competition. During Holy Week in March, we will be joined again by our choral department in two presentations of Richard Burchard’s Seven Last Words, and our season will end with the Mississippi premiere of Puccini’s last, and most spectacular opera, Turandot. This is the first time that any Mississippi organization has presented this amazing stage production.

Thank you for coming to our concerts and being our ambassadors. Please take every opportunity to tell someone about our events. A full house allows us to continue “bringing the world to Mississippi!”
