MSO Thanks Supporters

Meridian, Miss. A recognition luncheon for the members of the community who support the Meridian Symphony Orchestra was held Wednesday.

The donors were recognized and thanked for their support. The upcoming season was previewed at the event.

New music director, Peter Rubardt, says the support is a two-way street and that's how the arts community in Meridian can grow.

"Because there's a community of people that are eager to take the symphony orchestra and really launch it and have it become a meaningful part of the community," said Rubardt. "And that's very appealing to me."

The new season of the Meridian Symphony Orchestra starts Saturday at 7 p.m. with a concert that features five pieces that cover a huge range of orchestral music.
