Our New Name!

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 deep roots at McMaster University we have continued to grow and change as our audience and community have continued to grow. 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 logical step and coming back next season as the Burlington Symphony Orchestra.

We will have more news on the brand and on our 2019-2020 season in the coming weeks. For now, however, we will operate under both names until the official change takes place.
