Dear Patron of the Arts,

WE'RE BACK! The Merrimack Valley Philharmonic Orchestra is pleased to announce our upcoming season beginning with our Holiday Concert in December.

We appreciate the support you have given us in the previous years and look forward to seeing you soon..

A few of the highlights for this season include:

-- December 19, 2021 - FAMILY HOLIDAY CONCERT including The Grinch Stole Christmas and Nutcracker selections. Our featured soloist will be Nora Theberge performing a Vibraphone piece. Our guest conductor will be David Feltner.

-- February 27, 2022 - MARCH MADNESS MOVIE THEMES including Lord of the Rings, Frozen, and Pirates of the Caribbean.

-- May 15, 2022 - PASTORAL PALETTE includes Beethoven's Pastoral Symphony and Reinecke Flute Concerto
