"Audience Involvement"

We need your help to choose our next Music Director/Conductor. We
encourage you to complete the Audience Questionnaire. 

A hard copy can
be found in your concert program or you may download the form and email it back to


In addition, audience members are invited to attend a pre-concert
lecture, which will begin 45 minutes prior to each performance. The
30-minute session will allow each conductor candidate the opportunity
to share his knowledge of the pieces to be performed at the concert as well as for you, the audience, to get to know the conductor candidate.

The pre-concert lectures will begin at 6:45 p.m. on September 17,
2016, March 11, 2017, and May 6, 2017, at the Olean High School

Or, at the Bromley Theater located on the University of Pittsburgh
Bradford campus at 2:15 p.m. on September 18, 2016, March 12, 2017, and May 7, 2017.

There will be a 15-minute break before the concert begins.

On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Southern Tier Symphony, we appreciate your support of the Southern Tier Symphony and your input on the Audience Questionnaire, which will help us to identify our next Music Director/Conductor.
