100 MEN WHO COOK

On behalf of the Saginaw Bay Symphony Orchestra, and our Platinum Spoon Sponsor, Wildfire Credit Union, we are excited to tell you about the return of our fun-filled, entertaining event, “100 Men Who Cook." As the event name indicates, 100 men will join us for an evening of food, friends and music. The competition is fierce this year... most of the chefs from last year have already signed up.

As a chef their responsibility will be to prepare one of their favorite dishes and share it with our guests attending the event. Each chef will only be sharing a “taste” of their best dish and will have stations set-up to serve their dish. You will have the opportunity to "Tip" them with hopes that they will win their category for best dish! Their recipes will be included in the commemorative “100 Men Who Cook” cookbook as a gift to those in attendance along with some other goodies from our sponsors! Interested in being a chef for the event? Click here to register.


OUR MISSION

Since 1935, the Saginaw Bay Symphony Orchestra has brought the people of the Great Lakes Bay Region together to experience great classical music. In our 81st season, we continue our mission to advance the appreciation of orchestral music to our diverse audiences through high quality performances and innovative educational programs.


BACKGROUND INFO

The present-day Saginaw Bay Symphony Orchestra (SBSO) was created as a project of the Saginaw Department of Parks and Recreation and has performed an annual concert series ever since. It was incorporated as a separate non-profit corporation, the Saginaw Symphony Association, in 1953.


OUR MUSICIANS

The SBSO has established a proud legacy of superb musicianship, innovative programs and comprehensive educational experiences for the residents of the Great Lakes Bay Region. The Orchestra is a fully professional ensemble which draws its members from throughout Michigan. Musicians are selected by stringent peer review/audition process by principal players and the Music Director.


MUSIC SELECTIONS

The music selections for each season, chosen by the Music Director, in consultation with the musicians, the audience, and the Board of Directors, combine and contrast challenging signature orchestral works with the best contemporary compositions. World premiers by regional composers have been featured most seasons.
