An exhibit entitled “Take Note! 75 Years of the Hartford Symphony” is on display through August 10 at the Connecticut Historical Society, a Hartford-based museum, library, archive, and education center. The exhibit, open to the public, chronicles the orchestra’s beginnings during the Great Depression through today; it includes archival materials from the Connecticut Historical Society and Hartford Symphony Orchestra collections that tell the story of the people who came together to form the HSO, the musicians, the community they serve, and the orchestra’s ten music directors and conductors. Also included is an exploration of the HSO’s multi-season “Listen, Share, Celebrate!” community initiative studying and then sharing the diverse sounds of the Hartford region’s wide array of cultures, religions, and neighborhoods. Carolyn Kuan is the Hartford Symphony Orchestra’s music director, and Steve Collins is executive director.
