You will hear selections from:

2001, A Space Odyssey

and many more...

1891 saw the birth of the City of Ontario, and the birth of motion pictures studios...

SSO Chorus at Carnegie Hall

The SSO Chorus took part in a Presidents' Day performance of the Mozart Requiem. Our singers and VIP guests paid their own way to get there! The concert was fantastic - We will receive a copy of an archival DVD, and plan to have a "viewing party" (Date and time TBA) and we hope to return for another event perhaps next year! If you would like to help us, please donate today!
