Russian Masters

June 6 - June 8

Igor Stravinsky composed his Funeral Song in 1908, as a memorial tribute to his teacher, Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov. The score was lost for over 100 years and was only rediscovered in 2015. It now offers fascinating insights into Stravinsky's emerging orchestral technique. The score to Rachmaninoff's Symphony No. 1 was also lost for a time after the composer left Russia; it is now firmly established in the symphonic repertoire. Prokofiev's Third Piano Concerto is his most popular. The typically energetic and ingenious work…

Cirque De La Symphonie

June 13 - June 14

Two great artforms, both requiring agility, creativity, and a lifetime of practice, come together in this thrilling evening featuring Cirque de la Symphonie. Breathtaking acrobatics fly above the Orchestra, accompanied by stunning symphonic repertoire. The program features aerialists, contortionists, dancers, strongmen, and special surprises. Audiences were mesmerized when Cirque de la Symphonie made its debut in Verizon Hall in 2014. They are back this season for another set of heart-stopping, gravity-defying shows. With only two concerts, these are sure to…

Rachmaninoff And Mozart

June 15 - June 16

The Rachmaninoff Symphony No. 1 gets a well-deserved encore. Richard Woodhams, principal oboe from 1977 until his retirement at the end of the 2017-18 season, returns for this encore collaboration with his principal colleagues in this charming work for a quartet of winds and orchestra. Anna Clyne's Masquerade was premiered at the Last Night of the Proms in 2013 and “draws its inspiration from the original mid-18th century promenade concerts held in London's pleasure gardens” according to the composer. This…

Bernstein’s Candide

June 20 - June 22

In a capstone to our Leonard Bernstein centenary celebration, we present his quirky, complex, irreverent, and very humorous operetta Candide, with orchestral staging. First performed in 1956, the work has come into its own in recent decades, thanks to Bernstein's endless musical inventiveness and collaborators from Stephen Sondheim to Dorothy Parker (and of course, Voltaire, who wrote the original story, published in 1759). Yannick's great love for Bernstein's music has shown throughout the centenary and before, starting with the amazing production…
