Something wonderful has happened this season with the Galveston Symphony Orchestra.

People who haven’t been in years invariably notice the new energy and the new sense of fun, which seemed to coincide with the arrival of the new maestro, Trond Saeverud.

Human beings play music.

And this season of concerts has been all play and all fun — not work.

If this is news to you, you’re behind — although not fatally so.

The final performance of the season is set for 4 p.m. Sunday at The Grand 1894 Opera House, 2020 Postoffice St.

The program promises Svendsen, Stravinsky and Tchaikovsky.

It also promises to be fun.
