The Seniors Orchestral Society of New York City, founded by Elliot Levioff ’60, is the first permanent symphonic ensemble in the city composed of senior citizens. These musicians come together with their peers to study, learn, and rehearse the classical music repertoire, and to make classical music available to as wide an audience as possible through the presentation of free concerts in public spaces.

The second season of the Seniors Orchestral Society will begin on Saturday, October 19, 8 p.m., at the United Palace Theatre, 175th Street and Broadway. This unique orchestra will present a program of music inspired by Spain. The concert will be conducted by the orchestra's founder and music director, Elliot Levioff.
