Symphony returns to its original home

Ben Wade, maestro and artistic director of the Susanville Symphony Society announced a change to the location of some of the symphony concerts this season.

According to a statement from Wade, “The symphony is coming home, back to where it all started … the classical concerts for the 2022-2023 concert season will be held at the United Methodist Church, including their annual Christmas Concert.”

The society’s concert with a changed venue include A Susanville Christmas at 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 16 and 2:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 17; and the Susanville Pops Concert at 7 p.m. Saturday, May 13.

“We started at the Methodist church 19 years ago,” Wade said. “Every time I step in that building it brings back memories “

Wade said he worked hard with UMC choir director Dennis Roberts to coordinate the move.

“They have the best acoustics in Lassen County, and its where it all began. I am thrilled to be going back home”

The Symphony kicks off its 19th season at 5 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 17 on the lawn outside the historic Lassen County Courthouse.
