Hello Friends of GSO,
As you well know, the challenges of Covid are particularly difficult for large ensembles like the Greenwich Symphony Orchestra. With our season postponed, the joy of performing before a live audience is not available to musicians who miss us just as much as we miss them. To address this problem, GSO musicians came up with the GSOffstage program which features in-home musical performances. In this series, you will connect with orchestra members you are accustomed to seeing onstage.

Our Wish for You . . . Someone to Watch Over Me is a tender love song written by George and Ira Gershwin. Listen on the GSO YouTube channel as Susie Rotholz sings this beautiful song accompanied by her husband Eliot Bailen on guitar. Susie is Principal Flutist for the GSO and you'll see that she and her husband demonstrate musical skills you might not expect from classical musicians.
