About

We are now embarking on the first-ever recording project for the organization.   We will create two separate albums of compilations from the seven performances from the current season between now and April.  This recording will be produced on both CD and a limited quantity of vinyl.

This year we are featuring the following local bands on this series:

The Canton Symphony Orchestra (CSO) is one of the top regional orchestras in the country. We are located in Canton (Stark County), Ohio and our audience comes from many of the surrounding counties. We are very fortunate to recruit many of the top young musicians from Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Columbus, Cincinnati and beyond. We have a $1.4 million annual budget, an administrative staff of 10 and an orchestra of 79 contract players. 

The Divergent Sounds Series was started in 2018 and pairs local bands with 3-4 symphony musicians for an intimate one hour performance. Limited tickets are sold (only 150) so the concert is a truly special experience. We have partnered with two arrangers - Kevin Martinez and Nathan Mullaly - to adapt and arrange the band's original music to include the instruments of the orchestra. This series has quickly become one of our most popular and typically sells out. Each concert has a tie to a different genre of music - "Hip Hop Meets the Symphony", "Rock and Roll Meets the Symphony" and "Folk Meets the Symphony" are just a few to date.

We are asking for your help to support the production costs of this project.

The pins just arrived ... aren't they cute??

Stretch Goals

Risks and challenges

The total cost of the project is $20,000 so we will still have additional fundraising to do. If we don't raise the additional money we will reduce the number of recordings accordingly. Each band is so awesome and the CSO musicians are so talented that we don't want to leave a single one out!
