SOUTH VALLEY SYMPHONY • 2016 – 2017
Season 43: The Next Generation
South Valley Symphony will continue to focus its programming during its 43rd Season on our younger audience members and in particular those who play an instrument either in their school music programs or who take private lessons. As a reminder, ALL children and college students are free to ALL concerts.
