The 2011-2012 season was the symphony’s most successful ever. The orchestra played to four sold-out houses in a row and added two unscheduled performances to meet demand. The ninth season promises to be just as spectacular.
The season opens with “A Heart’s Jewel and Triumph” Oct. 20, featuring Mendelssohn’s Concerto in E Minor, said to be the “heart’s jewel” of violin concertos, and Tchaikovsky’s triumphant “1812 Overture.” Violinist Rebecca Corruccini will perform the Mendelssohn piece. This concert also includes works by Dvorak and Schubert.
The annual holiday concert, this year titled “Of Joy and Fate,” is Dec. 15 & 16. The performance will feature a blend of classical music and holiday favorites, including Handel’s “Hallelujah Chorus,” pieces by Beethoven, Brahms and Strauss, and the traditional sing-along.
On Feb. 9, 2013, the symphony will present its Valentine’s Day concert, “Love Is All You Need,” with tenor Jaeho Lee singing Verdi’s “E Lucevan le Stelle” from the opera “Tosca.” The orchestra also will play Beethoven’s Symphony No. 6, Ravel’s “Bolero” and other works of romance.
March 23, 2013, is “Our Magnificent Horns,” featuring the symphony’s horn section and May 18 will be the annual pops concert, “Made in America,” showcasing Broadway and film scores that celebrate America’s musical ingenuity.
