The Grossmont Symphony Orchestra (GSO), and Master Chorale (GMC), are East County's answer to quality classical music performances. Under the musical direction of Randall Tweed, the seventy-five member orchestral and fifty member choral ensembles are comprised of music and non-music majors, music teachers, and talented musicians from the community.
The 2015-2016 performance season of the Grossmont Symphony Orchestra (GSO) & Master Chorale (GMC) continues its musical tradition of providing high quality art and entertainment to its East County audience by performing a wide variety of classical music and musical styles. Music . . . to enlighten the senses is the theme of the new season. And like the Phoenix, the new performance season represents a reawakening of the senses in the programming of major works, many of them performed via multimedia presentation. With the anticipated groundbreaking of our new concert hall, the orchestra & chorale continues its tradition of sharing our East County Arts throughout our magnificent county. All performances are creatively varied—performances the entire family can afford: Adults $10, Students $5. Encompassing orchestral, choral, chamber music and our String Outreach Program, Grossmont is performing near you!
The new performance season also offers two core ensembles within the GSO: the Grossmont Symphony String Quintet(GSSQ) and Woodwind Quintet (GSWQ). All ensembles perform a season of varied and challenging repertoire. Based at Grossmont College, the ensembles serve the cultural enrichment of not only San Diego's East County, but the county at large.
