The In Memoriam Concert will be held one hour later than our usual concerts and will be performed at St. Mary's Cathedral in Fall River, MA.

In Memoriam Concert is a concert dedicated to celebrating the lives of our families and community members who are no longer with us. Often times the orchestra or symphony concert is an event where master works are presented in a public arena. Less often the concerts are presented to create a space where the audience can celebrate, morn, remember a loved one. This concert will serve as a venue for our community to come together and remember those who we love that are no longer with us. We will create a solemn place for peace, hope, solace and reflection. This concert was inspired by the passing of several orchestra members. We wanted to celebrate their lives and serve our community by creating a space so that they can celebrate the lives of their loved ones as well.
