Welcome, everyone, to our 78th season!
And what a season we have in store for Legends & Lore! Every year at this time the anticipation builds as we get all of the nuts and bolts of our concert season plugged into place (while at the same time we work behind the scenes planning for the season after this).
This summer's pops concert with Emily Walter got us off to a rousing start, and we only continue with more energy as the young Gareth Cordery performs Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto in October. In November we experience something totally different with the MIDIots ensemble and their works arranged for orchestra. Also on that concert will be the famous—but rarely heard in its entirety--William Tell Overture. Our annual December holiday concert keeps growing with our growing audience and orchestra, and this year we feature tenor Luke Barnard in six well-known vocal solos. The program will have everything from holiday standards, to sing-a-longs; to music that children will love, to music from your favorite holiday movies.
And speaking of movies, in February we present our first all-cinema-music program with great music of the silver screen! On April 2nd, flutist Lisa-Bost Sandberg will perform the epic Christopher Rouse Flute Concerto along with a program of Celtic inspired music, and we end our season on April 30th with a grand finale of Handel's Messiah! Area soloists and choruses join the BSO to present selections from Parts I, II and III of this masterpiece.
Thank you for being part of our continued journey. Fueled by the passion of music, away we go!
