“Conduct Us” POSTPONED indefinitely, originally scheduled for October 2, 2022, 12:30 PM – 1:30 PM, Hygienic Art Park

Due to forecasted high winds from remnants of Hurricane Ian, the originally scheduled “Conduct Us” which was to occur this Sunday, October 2nd will be postponed to a later date. While we are disappointed in this development, we want the best weather to allow for as many attendees and participants as possible to enjoy this experience. We will publicize widely once the new date is identified.

“Conduct Us” started when the ECSO participated in the international Make Music Day movement, which brings free, community-wide, outdoor musical celebrations to hundreds of cities worldwide! We last held this fun community event in Mystic River Park and we are delighted to bring it to New London with a rescheduled date in the future.

2022-23 Season general copy:

We are thrilled to announce our 22-23 Season lineup, curated by Music Director and Conductor Toshiyuki Shimada. Season highlights include Grammy-award-winning cellist Sara Sant’Ambrogio performing the Elgar Cello Concerto in October, the return of the New London Big Band in January, the Eastern Connecticut Symphony Chorus singing in Brahms’ German Requiem, and the Earth Day Celebration concert in April. From early fall to late spring, the 75-plus member professional Symphony Orchestra presents six subscription concerts annually, most of which feature guest soloists. Subscription concerts are performed at the historic award-winning Garde Arts Center on State Street in New London.
