Join Us for our 50th Anniversary Season!

Fifty great years to celebrate, at three favorite venues! Our flagship visit to the 1780s will launch in November as Colonial Concert XLIV at United Church on the Green. Our 50th birthday will be celebrated at Sprague Hall in March, revisiting our very first concert, an exciting potpourri of the music of James Sinclair’s specialty, Charles Ives. We close in May with a power-packed concert of Beethoven and two premieres at Battell Chapel by Joseph Russo and Jan Swafford in May.

Tickets are on sale now. Click a concert photo to purchase a ticket.

November 25
United Church on the Green

On November 25 we revisit Ye Olde Tymes with Colonial Concert XLIV. In addition to our esteemed conductor, musicians and soloists decked out in their best finery, as well as several surprise guests, we will have performances of the latest pieces brought over from across the Atlantic to be performed by our orchestra and organist.

For the first time, we will also have a choral finale featuring the estimable professional chorus Alchemy, prepared by Joseph D’Eugenio.

Sprague Memorial Concert Hall

On March 9 we will celebrate our 50th birthday by revisiting our very first “Yale Theatre Orchestra” concert from 1974, an all-Ives extravaganza that was so successful that within two weeks we recorded the whole affair for CBS Records (now Sony).

We are looking forward to performing this concert at Sprague Hall, our first home!

Battell Chapel at Yale


On May 4, O.N.E. will bring you a Beethoven piece and will premiere new works by two  composers: Joe Russo (O.N.E.’s beloved bassist) and Jan Swafford (the brilliant composer and the famed biographer of Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms, and Ives). We’ve enjoyed performing their works in the past and our audience has responded enthusiastically.

O.N.E. has premiered seventy-eight works in its first 49 years!
