Worth nothing: Symphony by Sea launches 33rd season

Donald PalmaNewburyport Daily News
By Ann Reily

A lot of time and effort goes into planning a Symphony by the Sea concert.

For the chamber orchestra’s season-opening concerts tonight and Sunday, music director and conductor Donald Palma put a lot of thought into his selection of arias and choruses by Verdi, Puccini, Rossini, Mozart and others.

“I spent months putting this program together and getting the right mix of pieces and the right order,” Palma said. “It’s kind of a compilation of some of the greatest operatic chestnuts or gems combined with some lesser-known pieces.”

In celebration of its 33rd season, the North Shore-based orchestra is continuing its efforts to reach out to younger audiences by offering a $10 discount on tickets to those age 33 and under.
