The Greensboro Symphony Orchestra (GSO) is the third largest orchestra in North Carolina, after the North Carolina Symphony and Charlotte Symphony. For more than six decades, the group has been a cherished cornerstone of the Triad community. This esteemed institution consistently enriches the lives of its residents by offering a variety of musical productions, spanning from symphonic performances to the biggest pop concerts. Moreover, the organization is deeply committed to educational outreach, impacting the lives of over 50,000 children annually through its programs.
Their dedication to musical excellence is evident through their roster of top-tier soloists and exciting collaborations with international superstars. Each season, the GSO pushes the boundaries of music, delivering cutting-edge performances and from September to June, the concert series takes center stage at the Steven Tanger Center for the Performing Arts. This upcoming season includes a diverse range of performances, from Masterworks and POPS to Family and Gospel concerts.
On top of this, the ‘22-’23 Season holds particular significance as it also marks the concluding chapter of Maestro Dmitry Sitkovetsky’s remarkable tenure as the GSO Music Director. Having led the Greensboro Symphony Orchestra with passion and dedication since 2003, Maestro Sitkovetsky recently shared his decision to retire at a recent GSO Board Meeting.
“Though each individual was virtuosic and talented, they played as a unit and allowed the proper melodies and progressions to shine through.” – The Carolinian

The Cirque de la Symphonie is a fresh production that aims to bring the creativity of Cirque to major music halls across the nation. More importantly, what truly sets them apart is that each exhilarating performance is professionally choreographed to masterpieces and popular contemporary music in collaboration with the maestro. Furthermore, The Seattle Times praises how these world-class performers successfully achieved the seemingly impossible. “The capacity crowd that turned out for Cirque de la Symphonie could not have been more pleased.”
Lead vocalist Christiane Noll is a highly acclaimed actress known for her Tony and Drama Desk award nominations and a Helen Hayes award win for her role as “Mother” in the Kennedy Center Revival of Ragtime.

Similarly, Jason Forbach, recognized for his commanding tenor, has a versatile career that covers opera, symphony, and Broadway shows. He stepped into the lead role of “The Baker” in the 2022 revival of Into the Woods and currently portrays “Rapunzel’s Prince” in the National Tour of the same show. His previous roles include “Raoul, Vicomte de Changy” in The Phantom of the Opera, and “Enjolras” in the 2014 Tony-nominated Broadway revival of Les Misérables, a role he initially performed on the 25th Anniversary National Tour.
