The Manassas Symphony Orchestra wrapped up the 2017-18 season on Saturday with its performance of “Russian Silver.”
The concert was held at the Hylton Performing Arts Center in Manassas.
“It’s been a wonderful year, and we’ve been so blessed to have such wonderful crowds,” Music Director James Villani told attendees.
State Senator Jeremy McPike recognized the Manassas Symphony Orchestra at the beginning of the concert.
He presented a resolution commending the orchestra on its 25th anniversary, which it celebrated this season.
“It is a joy as I travel around Virginia to be able to tell people that this in fact is the orchestra that was the 2015 winner of the American Prize for Orchestral Performance in the Community Division,” McPike said. “This is not a common thing, and I think it’s to the hard work of the folks you see behind me, to Jim, to the board members that are here tonight. This is truly an incredible community asset we have.
The Manassas Symphony Orchestra was founded in 1992. It seeks enrich, educate, and entertain its audiences and musicians, according to its website.
