PHOENIX — The Phoenix Symphony will kick off its 75th season in next month with its first performance since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Valley residents and visitors can begin attending performances for the 2021-2022 season Oct. 22 at Symphony Hall in Phoenix. The orchestra, featuring violinist Giora Schmidt, will play Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s “Violin Concerto” and “Symphony No. 5,” according to a press release.

It will be the first Phoenix Symphony performance with a full orchestra since the beginning of the pandemic, according to the release.

Most concerts will be played at Symphony Hall, however, a select few performances will take place at the Orpheum Theatre, Arizona State University Gammage Auditorium and Mesa Arts Center.

“We are thrilled to return to Symphony Hall and perform for our community once again,” Suzanne Wilson, president and CEO of The Phoenix Symphony, said in the release. “Opening night will be very emotional for all of us as we reunite and take part in this triumphant homecoming.”

This season will host a variety of performances, ranging from classic to pop performances and from shows inspired by the movie “Coco” and “Jurassic Park.”

Artists including the violinist Midori and pianist Joyce Yang are expected to play as part of the Classics Series, which will finish off in May with performances of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony.

Single-concert tickets range from $20 to $75, while four-concert subscriptions cost anywhere between $80 and $300. Buyers can pick any four dates to add into the subscription, with the exception of New Year’s Eve.

A full list of the 2021-2022 season schedule can be found online.
