    The annual Halloween Show on October 31st at midnight is YSO’s most unique performance: the orchestra plays a soundtrack, consisting of pop music, movie soundtracks, and classical pieces, to a silent film written by, produced by, directed by, and starring YSO members. Woolsey Hall is packed with students for one of the biggest events of the fall semester.

  • Saturday, November 11, 2017 - 8:00pm to 10:00pm

    Join us as we reflect on the orchestra’s Spring tour to Russia with two definitive works. Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 11 (The Year 1905) is a dramatic and passionate piece written in commemoration of Russia’s 1905 revolution that has been called a “film score without a film.” YSO Concertmaster Cameron Daly will play the Glazunov violin concerto, and we continue our mission of supporting new music and fostering the talents of Yale undergraduates with a world premiere by Max Vinetz.

  • Saturday, February 10, 2018 - 8:00pm to 10:00pm

    Our first concert of the new year is a lilting reminder of simpler times, featuring two pieces portraying the perspectives of children. The Yale Symphony Orchestra presents Ravel’s Mother Goose Suite, a fairy-tale ballet originally written as a piano duet for two children, and Mahler’s Symphony No. 4, said to represent a child’s view of heaven. Featuring Yale Glee Club in the world premiere of Caroline Shaw’s “Music in Common Time,” guest conducted by Yale Glee Club director Jeffrey Douma.
