Season Highlights

2011-2012 Coastal Symphony Season

Dear Friends of the Coastal Symphony,

Welcome to the 29th Season of the Coastal Symphony of Georgia! What began with a group of local musicians dedicated to providing young music students with an opportunity to perform with experienced string and wind musicians in an orchestral setting has grown into full-fledged regional orchestra that enriches and inspires our community with four concerts of classical music each year. Our symphony is now the only one on the Georgia coast between Charleston and Jacksonville.

Our 2011-12 season promises to be a wonderful one filled with classical favorites, a delightful Christmas pops concert and a joint performance with the Coastal Symphony Chorus. We rely on you, our audience, to give us direction as to what kind of music you want to hear and your input this past spring through the surveys taken at the last two concerts was invaluable in planning the coming season. On the next page, Vernon Humbert, our Music Director will give you an overview of this season’s musical journey.

Order your season tickets now to insure that you won’t miss any of these wonderful musical offerings. Joining the Conductor’s Circle gives you additional benefits including reserved seating, as well as the satisfaction of knowing that you are helping to nurture and grow this valuable community asset.

Dedicating a musical selection is another wonderful way to support the symphony while honoring an individual or an organization or serving as a memorial. The musical arrangements that can be underwritten are listed on the last page of this brochure. Your dedication will be noted in our newsletter as well as in the program for the concert at which the music is performed.

On behalf of all of us associated with the Coastal Symphony, I would like to thank you for your loyal support over the past 28 years. The 29th season promises to be the best ever and we look forward to seeing you at our first concert on October 17th.


Sue Cansler,
