“Working with the Hartford Symphony Orchestra has been an absolute pleasure. Their talent, professionalism, and passion for music are truly unmatched. Each performance they deliver is nothing short of stunning and leaves our audience in awe. I look forward to continuing our collaboration and presenting more outstanding shows together.”

Joe Kosin, Vice President, Programming, Innovation Arts & Entertainment

“Partnering with the Hartford Symphony has tremendously enriched the artistic offerings of the Albert Schweitzer Organ Festival, empowering both our organizations to present rarely-heard works for organ and orchestra in world-class concerts at Mortensen Hall and Trinity College. We look forward to future projects!”

Christopher Houlihan, Artistic Director, Albert Schweitzer Organ Festival Hartford College Organist and Director of Chapel Music, Trinity College

“HSO embodies what it means to be an orchestra – a group of individually talented musicians coming together to create a better whole. They bring this idea into the community as well. Working with the HSO and the Greater Hartford community to capture stories of collaboration and partnership was a rewarding and uplifting collaboration. Listening to their music, hearing the voices of those who play and experience the music…. Getting to film the stories of HSO outreach into the community, and the impact it has on these people, was, and remains, a highlight of the last few years. Art has the power of transformation- And music is one of the best mediums through which to accomplish this. I’ve seen how the HSO transforms lives through its outreach, and betters the community it calls home.”
