Sundays at the Symphony … with the New Philharmonic Orchestra announcing some amazing Sunday afternoons. And there’s always something interesting to do in the lobby from 2:30 p.m. – so plan to come early to meet soloists, hear more about the music, shop silent auction, meet people and have a cookie or something refreshing.
October 9 … A Musical Sunrise
You’ll find yourself in places like “The Pines of Rome” (Respighi), with a “grand march” from Gounod’s “Queen of Sheba,” a Schubert symphony and Puccini intermezzo (“Manon Lescaut”). A magical opening to our season!
December 11 … Remember when…?
Tchaikovsky’s “Nutcracker’ was always part of the season, with colorful ballet onstage? And holidays meant singing your favorite carols with friends and family? This one is for you! They’re back! Guests, Momentum Dance Company.
February 12 … Opera and ‘The Firebird’
Here are arias and overtures from best-loved operas to warm this chilly month – Mozart’s “The Magic Flute,” Rossini’s “The Barber of Seville” – with guest soloist Michael Pandolfo and Stravinsky’s blazing “Firebird Suite.”
April 2 … Brilliant, sunny music
It’s sheer excitement as we welcome spring! Saint-Saens’ Bacchanal, Berlioz’ Hungarian March, Bartok’s Violin Concerto #1 with Adrian Demian, and Bizet’s Carmen Suite no. 1, with a stageful of Irving’s best student musicians.
May 14 … Towering composers!
Hear great music by Brahms (Symphony no. 2), matched by Von Suppe’s thrilling overture to “The Queen of Spades.” And join us in saluting a young artist, winner of our annual concerto competition, as we end the season!
