The Hendricks Symphonic Society may be a hometown musical organization, but when the musicians take their chairs and the instruments begin to dance, you'll be taken worlds away. 

The 10th season of the Hendricks Symphonic Society has begun and is themed "Music for Every Taste" and really does appeal to the masses. From the five talent showcases to the six traditional concerts, everyone will find an evening to enjoy.

Symphony goers will find concerts featuring Baroque music, a semi-staged performance of Gilbert and Sullivan's “The Pirates of Penzance,” classic cartoon music at the “Peter and the Wolf” concert and a concert with brass instruments and choral music with a smattering of the holiday classics during the "Christmas Potpourri" concert, featuring dancers from the local Children's Ballet.
