The Petersburg Symphony Orchestra just celebrated their 40th Anniversary and was established in 1978 by Dr. F. Nathaniel Gaitlin. They are dedicated to preserving, developing, educating, and delivering quality and diverse music to all ages, through tailored performing arts programming. The PSO is an important part of life in the central and southern regions of Virginia. Dr. Gatlin’s dream of a symphony orchestra for Petersburg has blossomed into one of Petersburg’s most treasured assets. More information on the PSO can be found at www.petersburgsymphony.org.
This event is hosted by Pamplin Historical Park and sponsored by The Bank of Southside Virginia and The Bucket Trade.
