Greenville Symphony Orchestra
A regional symphony orchestra that provides a wide variety of classical music concerts and programs that highlights some of the most beautiful music in the world from the past 300 years. An extensive educational outreach program is also available.
When my wife and I moved to Greenville from the New York City metropolitan area we were concerned that we would not hear the quality musical performances that we have heard previously. We are both classical musicians and decided on Greenville because it is located between Atlanta and Charlotte. We figured that we could go to either of those two places to hear first rate performances. We have not gone to either place in the nine years that we have been here. The quality of the Greenville Symphony is so good that these trips have not been necessary. It's hard to believe that it gets better each time we go. We feel lucky to have moved to an area that values all artistic endeavors.
The orchestra performs very well. All members seem to work very hard. The problem that I see is with the conducting. Unfortunately the conductor has only two modes of conducting, completely over the top, or soft; but no where in between. Dymanic is lacking. I heard the performance of Dvorak's ninth last Saturday, and with the exception of the second movement, I was alarmed at the volume and disregard for subtlety. If I had to advise the conductor, I would say "non troppo".
