Groton Hill Music’s Orchestra of Indian Hill has rebranded as the Vista Philharmonic Orchestra, the nonprofit organization recently announced.
Composed of 70 professional musicians, the orchestra is set to open its 48th season on Oct. 21 at Meadow Hall inside the newly constructed Groton Hill Music Center at 122 Old Ayer Road. An encore presentation is scheduled for Oct. 23 and a Christmas-themed concert is scheduled for Dec. 17.
Groton Hill Music CEO Lisa Fiorentino said they were “excited to rebrand” with a “bold artistic vision.” Likewise, Artistic Director and Conductor Burce Hangen, who has led the orchestra since 1997, said the new name is representative of the orchestra’s history, but also its vision of the future.
“The word ‘vista’ means many things, from view and outlook to panorama and perspective,” Hangen said. “Wonderful vistas abound in our new home, which also opens the door to new experiences in music and different perspectives on what live music experiences can be.”
“The name Vista Philharmonic Orchestra says that while we are firmly planted in tradition, our eyes are always on the horizon,” he said.
The full orchestra season will begin on Jan. 21, with “Opening Night at the Philharmonic” and the grand opening of The Concert Hall at Groton Hill.
The Groton Hill Music Center will open to the public on Sept. 9. For more information on Groton Hill Music, the Groton Hill Music Center or Vista Philharmonic Orchestra, visit https://grotonhill.org.
