About the Artist
The Bangor Symphony Orchestra, founded in 1896 and continuing its strong tradition as a community orchestra, is pledged to provide Maine people with powerful, enriching and diverse musical experiences through live concert performances and education programs of the highest quality.
The Symphony is currently comprised of 65 members most of whom live within the state of Maine. Led by Music Director and Conductor Xiao-Lu Li, the season runs from September through May and consists of Classical Concerts, Pops, special events, including the traditional holiday favorite, Tchaikovsky''s ""Nutcracker"" Ballet with the Robinson Ballet Company, and run-out concerts across the state.
A yearly statewide high school music competition is sponsored by the Symphony. The winner performs a solo with the Bangor Symphony Orchestra at the annual Youth Concerts in March. In 2005, over 4,000 students from public, private and home-based schools across central and northeastern Maine attended these concerts.
