Walla Walla Symphony Announces 2023-24 Season

The Walla Walla Symphony’s upcoming 2023-24 season will be dedicated to the selection of the Symphony’s next music director and conductor. The search process began following the announcement of Maestro Yaacov Bergman’s retirement from a distinguished 36-year career with the symphony. The season will begin on Oct. 1 with a free concert honoring Bergman and his musical legacy.

The symphony’s 117th season will be composed of six concerts, each conducted by one of six finalists. During their time with the symphony, the candidates will engage with the Walla Walla community, collaborate with the orchestra and present a concert tailored to the Walla Walla Symphony. The season will conclude with the appointment of the new conductor next June.

Concert programs will feature a diverse selection of music, including works by familiar composers such as Tchaikovsky, Dvořák, and Sibelius, as well as compositions by living composers such as Jessie Montgomery and Clarice Assad.

Subscription options include the full symphony series of six concerts, as well as a flexible “U-Pick” series that allows you to choose four or five concerts. Single concert tickets will go on sale Monday, Oct. 16.
