Finding a New Home

Just as Symphony by the Sea is about to launch its 35th Season of performing classical music, it has found a new home: the Cabot in Beverly which itself is poised to become ‘the performing arts center’ for the entire region. The Cabot will join the Firehouse Center in Newburyport as the two venues for the orchestra’s regular season concerts.

Symphony by the Sea has enjoyed a warm welcome at Abbot Hall in Marblehead in recent years. A loyal audience has followed the orchestra through the years, and both veteran subscribers and new music lovers will love this new performing arts space with it ample stage, wonderful acoustics and raked seating, as well as ample parking and proximity to a variety of restaurants which will be a pre or post performance complement to the musical experience.

The first concert at the Cabot, which is actually a make-up concert originally scheduled in February, and postponed because of weather will be on Saturday, June 20, at 8:00 pm. The program, “A Program of Classical Favorites” at the Cabot features a guest appearance by Congressman Seth Moulton who will narrate the stirring Lincoln Portrait by Aaron Copland. Rounding out this program will be music of Rossini, Tchaikovsky and Mendelssohn. Tickets can be purchased at the Cabot website or at the Cabot box office door any time they're open.

The 2015-2016 Season at the Cabot will feature a subscription series on Sunday afternoons as well as a special holiday concert in December.

The orchestra enjoys a large and enthusiastic audience in the Newburyport area. “A Program of Classical Favorites“ will be performed at the Firehouse Center on Friday, June 5, at 8 PM. Symphony by the Sea will be at the Firehouse Center as well as at the Cabot for the 2015-2016 season. The 2015-2016 concerts will be on Saturday evenings at the Firehouse, giving Newburyport audiences a choice between Saturday evening at the Firehouse and Sunday afternoon at the Cabot. Tickets for the Newburyport concerts can be purchased at the Firehouse Center for the Performing Arts.

Symphony by the Sea is proud to be partnered with Endicott College and the Jewish Community Center of the North Shore
