Welcome to the Muscatine Symphony’s
new MasterWorks Season!
A Note From Our President:
On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Muscatine Symphony Orchestra Association (MSOA), I welcome you to our new and exciting 2019-2020 season.
So lean back, relax, and let us take you away from all other distractions. Let the force of music speak to you. Yo-Yo Ma, the famous cellist during a recent PBS News Hour on April 15, 2019, talks about the importance of telling each other stories through music, he states, “…it can heal, it can inspire, it can create wonder…”, but more than that it creates culture. Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary defines culture (n) as the characteristic features of everyday existence (such as diversions or a way of life) shared by people in a place or time. Music is this shared daily experience that enhances our lives and makes us feel joy, sadness or other such emotions and is part of our culture.
I agree with Yo-Yo Ma when he states his belief that “…culture is the ground on which everything else is built. It is where the global and local, rural and urban, present and future confront one another…and is essential to our survival. It is how we invent, how we bring the new and old together, how we imagine a better future.”
We’re so very glad to be part of the greater-Muscatine community. And know that without our audience and supporters, we could not exist. The MSO succeeds because of your generous continued financial support and recommendations to your family and many friends. Help us #savethemusicinmusca.
Cheers! It’s going to be a GREAT Season!
