The RSO continues to explore the meaningful ways in which music intersects with our community and its history. October 2017 marks the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther's Ninety-Five Theses, which gave birth to a new kind of church music, brought to Berks County when German immigrants settled in the area.

The music of Bach gave voice to these newcomers, and on Sunday, October 29, the RSO aims to present a concert of Bach's works together with the Vox Philia Chamber Choir.

In order to present programs like these, contributions from patrons like you are vitally necessary. Please call us at 610-373-7557 if you are interested in supporting this or other initiatives to continue to bring World-Class Music – Close to Home. Donations are also accepted through PayPal.
