104th Season 2023-24


Welcome to VOYAGES — the 104th season of the USM Symphony Orchestra! We are once again pleased to bring you the very best in symphonic music as we continue our mission of education and community outreach. This will be a wonderful season of world class guest artists, conductors and music from all over the globe! 

As we travel the globe in search of great music, we invite you along on our journey in a  season of great music. Our ticket prices will remain at $20 this season so everyone can afford to enjoy our concerts. Season ticket purchasers will enjoy a discount equal to one free concert, and students are always welcome at our concerts free of admission with ID. 

This year, we move to a new ticketing system in hopes of making your experience as simple as possible. However, this system does not allow us to sell reserved seats. We hope you join us in this opportunity to enjoy your regular seats and to explore new views and sounds in the performance spaces. 

We enjoy and appreciate the support we receive from our community and hope you will share your experience with friends, inviting them to join us for a concert or the season.

Director of Orchestral Activities
