The Huntington Symphony has been around since the 1930's in various forms, sometimes disbanding for several years, and sometimes forming as the smaller "chamber" orchestra. Some of the musicians who were with the original Huntington Symphony Orchestra through the 1950s still play with us today.
In recent years, the Huntington Symphony has hosted artists from around the world, such as Andreas Klein who is a pianist from Germany. Mr. Klein played Beethoven on a grand piano in Huntington City Hall.
Maestro Kimo Furumoto is best recognized for his onstage charisma. It's amazing he has any energy left after flying from California, where he teaches university, to West Virginia, where he conducts our orchestra! But regardless of the long layovers and nights on airplanes, Maestro Furumoto is known for his bright demeanor and enthusiastic conducting.
