REFLECTIONS

Masonic Center Auditorium

Composers often reflect on legends and travels, or pay homage to previous composers while looking forward to the future. Such is the case as we open our subscription series with Wagner's Overture to Die Meistersinger, a trip to España as recalled by Emmanuel Chabrier, and Beethoven's First Symphony. Tenor saxophone soloist, Dr. Debra Rhodes, joins the HSO in a performance of The Upward Stream by American composer, Russell Peck.

ADVENTURES AND TALES

Here's something that doesn't happen every day.  Actually, it never has.  This is the world-premiere of a concerto for the nycklharpa, a Swedish instrument joyfully played by HSO violinist, Debby Greenblatt.  Based on tales from Hans Christian Andersen, Christopher Stanichar's original composition will certainly delight everyone.  Other selections include Finlandia by Jean Sibelius, and an incomparable musical tour of the Grand Canyon Suite by Ferde Grofé..
