The Board of Directors of Symphony on the Bay is delighted to announce that in 2019-2020 we will be returning as the Burlington Symphony Orchestra.

From our early beginnings at McMaster University we have continued to grow and change as our audience and community have grown. We are thrilled, therefore, that after many years of expanding our roots into Burlington – from St. Christopher’s Anglican Church to the Royal Botanical Gardens to the Burlington Performing Arts Centre – we are taking the next step and opening this season as the Burlington Symphony Orchestra.

In Nature's Realm – Sunday, May 10, 2020 at 3 pm

Celebrate Mother’s Day and the glories of spring with a classical symphonic concert by the Burlington Symphony Orchestra, with Kristan Toczko (harp) and Corey Gemmell (violin). Plus the winner of our annual Young Artists’ Competition.
