Many thanks to the Local Cultural Councils who have supported our concerts so far this season.

The Pioneer Valley Symphony is very fortunate to receive funding from the Massachusetts Cultural Council, and also to receive project support from several Local Cultural Councils. We thank the following for their support:

Our 76th Season Opening Gala Concert on October 25, 2014 at the UMass Fine Arts Center, Amherst was supported in part by grants from the Amherst and Hadley Cultural Councils, local agencies which are supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.

Our Annual Family Holiday Concert on December 13, 2014, at the Hess Center for the Arts, Deerfield Academy, was supported in part by a grant from the Deerfield Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.

Looking forward to the next concert!

On Sunday, March 29 at 7pm, the PVS will be back at the Hess Center for the Arts at Deerfield Academy for the next concert in our 76th season. We’ll welcome fabulous pianist Jeffrey Biegel, who will perform Rachmaninoff’s Third Piano Concerto in D Minor, Op. 30. Also on the program are two works by Jean Sibelius, in celebration of the composer’s sesquicentenary: The Tempest Overture, Op. 109, and Symphony No. 3 in C Major, Op. 52.

Our soloist is an accomplished pianist, composer, and arranger and records widely. Here he is performing a virtuoso rendition of Leroy Anderson’s “Sleigh Ride.”
