The Susquehanna Symphony Chamber Orchestra (SSCO) is a smaller set of strings, winds, and percussion, all masked and socially distanced to ensure the safety of our performers and patrons. 

COVID-19 Policies:

Effective March 13, 2022, wearing a mask at the performance will be optional, but we strongly encourage patrons to wear a mask for the health and safety of the audience and musicians.  A section of seats will be reserved for those patrons who feel more comfortable sitting only with others who are masked.  As the pandemic continues to evolve daily, an updated policy may be posted prior to the concert.

There will be two concerts held on the same day at the same venue. This is for the sale of the 7:30pm tickets. Children up to 10 years old are free, but should reserve a ticket for capacity/attendance limits. Student and senior tickets are available at 4pm only.

Online ticket sales end the evening before the concert but tickets may be purchased at the door (same prices) up to capacity limit.

Kinga Augustyn is an award-winning New York City-based virtuoso concert violinist. Augustyn’s expanding discography includes the Paganini Caprices, which music critics consider as convincing as Perlman’s or Midori’s, and an “an enduring benchmark” (Classical Net). “Stylish and vibrant” (The Strad Magazine), and “beyond amazing, one hell of a violinist!” (The Fanfare Magazine), Augustyn is often praised for her musical interpretations. Gramophone calls her “Turning in Time” album of 20th and 21st Century works “remarkable”.

Augustyn has performed as a soloist with orchestras in the United States, Europe and Asia, including the Deutsches Kammerorchester Berlin, Magdeburg Philharmonic Orchestra, the Chamber Orchestra Leopoldinum, the Wrocław Philharmonic Orchestra, and the Riverside Symphonia. She has toured China and performed at China’s Beijing Poly Theater and Shanghai Oriental Art Center. Other venues she has recently appeared at include the Stern Auditorium and the Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall, Alice Tully Hall, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Aspen Music Festival, the Chicago Cultural Center and Teatro Ristori in Italy.

In 2021 Augustyn released two highly acclaimed solo violin albums: Turning in Time with music of the late 20th/21st Century, and La Pasión with music by Astor Piazzolla. In 2018, with the Torun Symphony Orchestra and Mariusz Smolij, she released on Naxos an album of world premieres by the Polish composer Romuald Twardowski (b. 1930). Augustyn had previously made a significant contribution to Polish music by recording the Polish Violin Music, a highly praised, “fascinating” (The Strad) album of lesser-known Polish composers. Her other discography includes Glen Roven’s Runaway Bunny Concerto with Catherine Zeta-Jones as a narrator, and Mendelssohn/Bruch Violin Concertos with Janacek Philharmonic and Jakub Klecker.

Kinga studied at The Juilliard School with Dorothy DeLay, Cho-Liang Lin, and Naoko Tanaka, and at the Stony Brook University with Phil Setzer and Pamela Frankm and plays on a violin made by Joseph Gagliano in 1774, generously on loan from a private collector.
