HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) — The Harrisburg Symphony Orchestra will be making its return to its historic home, the Forum Auditorium, this fall.

With renovations finishing up, The Harrisburg Symphony Orchestra will be returning to the Forum Auditorium for their 2022-2023 season.

“Our 2022-2023 season at the majestic Forum Auditorium promises to be a joyous reunion filled with some of the most beautiful and exciting music ever written,” said Matthew Herren, executive director of the orchestra. “We cannot wait to welcome patrons to twelve weekends of powerful live performances with world-renowned guest artists and our own extraordinary Harrisburg Symphony musicians. Nothing compares to the thrill of being there in person.”
