This Season’s Concerts
Please note that we will not be performing in our regular venue, nor at our usual times this season.
The March and April concerts will be starting at 2:30pm, earlier than previously advertised.
The Greenwich Village Orchestra is proud to announce its 2017–18 season, “On the Town”! Come join us as we make a tour of Manhattan — we are excited to perform this season in two beautiful churches, at the exquisitely renovated Third Street Music School Settlement, and in the cozy Tenri Cultural Institute. We know you’ll love this season as much as we love making music, and we are eager to share some great works with you, our wonderful audience!
As always, we’ll continue to offer everything you’ve come to expect from the GVO: total commitment to performance, world class soloists, low ticket prices, and continued commitment to our local, downtown community.
All GVO concerts are general admission, for a suggested donation of $20 for adults, $10 for seniors and children, except where noted. Tickets may be purchased at the door on the day of the concert or online using the “Buy Tickets” buttons below.
- Due limited seating in this seasons’ venues on-line orders will close at least 24-hours before the concert start.
- At this time only full price tickets are available for advance purchase (excluding April 2018 concert).
- Please have a copy of your receipt available for viewing at the box office.
