Salem Philharmonic plays Sunday

SALEM — The Salem Philharmonic Orchestra opens its free winter concert series on Sunday with a mix of light classical and popular music.

The series is one of the city’s oldest cultural traditions — this is the orchestra’s 110th season — and usually draws a big crowd. This 45-piece orchestra is under the direction of Alan Hawryluk, who has been conducting the Philharmonic’s performances for 49 years.

Sunday’s concert will feature baritone Benjamin Taylor, who is a graduate student at Boston University, and violinist Dorothy Chung.

Concerts are held at the Salem High School auditorium, 77 Willson St., beginning at 3 p.m. Dates for the remainder of the series are Sundays, Jan. 12 and 26, and Feb. 2. Admission is free and the auditorium is wheelchair-accessible.

Each program features professional musicians along with some selected amateurs and guest soloists. At the Jan. 12 concert, the Salem High School Symphony Orchestra will perform alongside the Philharmonic for part of the program.

Concerts are supported in part by The Salem Trust Fund Commission, The Salem Five Bank, The Salem Cultural Council and donations from the public.
