Melrose Symphony Orch

In 1918, a group of citizens in Melrose founded the first all-volunteer orchestra with a small ensemble of 45 players. This could have been a nice little experiment and just faded away after a few years, but it just kept growing and getting more popular. Today, they routinely have sold out shows, and have released a number of CD’s to the public of their performances. It is the oldest continuing all-volunteer orchestra in the country, and does not show any signs of stopping. Make sure you get your tickets early because these shows sell out quick.
