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.
