Led by Music Director, Eckart Preu, the orchestra is comprised of 82 professional musicians, 40% of them residing in Maine and the rest coming from the greater Boston area, New Hampshire and Vermont. The PSO will be accompanied by guest vocalist Alyson Cambridge. Cambridge is currently starring in ROCKTOPIA on Broadway and has sung multiple lead roles with the Metropolitan Opera. She has been hailed by critics as "radiant, vocally assured, and artistically imaginative (Washington Post), noted for her "powerful, clear voice" (New York Times), and "revelatory, smoky readings" (Opera News). For over a decade, Cambridge has been performing at some of the world's most recognized opera houses and concert halls (Carnegie Hall, Los Angeles Opera, and London's Royal Albert Hall, to name a few). Alyson Cambridge has become "one of the most diverse and compelling vocal artists on the scene today."
