Viewfinder: Backstage with the Brookline Symphony Orchestra
The Brookline Symphony Orchestra holds its second concert after a 10-year hiatus.
The Brookline Symphony Orchestra performed its second concert Sunday evening, at All Saints Parish on Beacon Street, after returning from 10 years of no performances. The orchestra has been steadily getting back on its feet since September; the beginning hasn't been easy.
"It's a bumpy road until you figure out who the players are," says Silvain Bouix, Clerk of the Brookline Symphony Orchestra Corporation (a registered non-profit). Bouix says they hope to continue to expand the group and perform 3-4 concerts per year. But he also admits that finding funding can be challenging. He thinks that one of the reasons the previous group didn't work out was because they weren't involved in the community and hopes to have this group be more active in that respect.
