Introducing The Toledo Symphony
Led by Music Director Stefan Sanderling, the Toledo Symphony has a rich history of serving northwest Ohio and southwest Michigan. In the past 67 years, the symphony has grown from a core group of 22 part-time musicians to a regional orchestra of nearly 80 professional musicians. With roots that date back to 1838, the symphony sees itself as the musical heart of the area, with neighborhood and regional concerts, a music school and two youth orchestras, in addition to traditional concert offerings.
On May 7, the Toledo Symphony makes its Carnegie Hall debut in the second concert of the 2011 Spring for Music festival.
Here, Sanderling, members of the orchestra, and the mayor of Toledo introduce the orchestra and the program for that night.
