A Note from Our Conductor

Above all, we wish to present a fresh sound as the SPO—A sound of brilliance and agility. Comprised primarily of some of the most accomplished musicians in Jefferson City and augmented with some superb young players from Columbia, Kansas City, St. Louis, Springfield, and Chicago, our performances are held in the acoustically-ideal CUCC sanctuary.
