Close your eyes and experience Mendelssohn's uncanny ability to capture images in music, even as a teen. His colorful and engaging "String Symphony No. 7" just feels like home. Plus, marvel at the genius of Beethoven's daring "String Quartet No. 11", deftly arranged by Gustav Mahler for full string orchestra. It sparks a glow that shouts with the identical surprise and remarkable technique we cherish. *Face mask REQUIRED to attend.
Two international sensations of the contemporary music scene explore the frontiers of classical music to deliver heart-achingly beautiful and immersive scores for film, TV and stage. Revel in the works of Max Richter and Alexis Ffrench, as well as other contemporary greats, at this easy-listening concert featuring a lovely paring of MSO's own keyboardist and violinist, Tyler and Shellie Kemp. (*City Centre Garage will be closed, but curbside parking available around The Hall!)
Candlelit surroundings for the master’s music brings an intimate, authentic aura to MSO’s 20-year tradition, yet in a different setting. Beginning with a serenade for two small orchestras, then on to one of his fun musical parodies. This year's concert is anchored by Mozart's famous and instantly recognizable, "Eine Kleine Nachtmusik". Generously sponsored by Mr. & Mrs. Bud Robinson + StateStreet Group. *Face mask REQUIRED to attend. CONCERT IS SOLD OUT!!!
*City Centre Garage remains closed, but there will be ample street parking available on all sides of The Hall!*
Enjoy Baroque at its exuberant best with Johann Sebastian Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos (Nos. 1 & 4) in exquisite swirls of energy and drive. Hear Franz Josef Haydn’s first of more than a hundred symphonies that changed orchestral music forever. Join us and featured harpsichordist Shawn Leopard, as we welcome MSO’s flutes, horns, and bassoon back to the stage for a lively, feel-good evening that will lift your spirits on into spring! *Tickets available Mar 27.
At more than 300 years young, Johann Pachelbel’s world-famous Canon in D Major still rings true as a masterpiece of peaceful joy and beauty. Join us for this and other beloved classics, including Samuel Barber’s hauntingly inspirational Adagio for Strings, Tommaso Albinoni’s beautifully levetational Adagio in g minor, Tchaikovsky’ Andante Cantabile from String Quartet No.1, Bela Bartok’s gorgeously brilliant Rumanian Folk Dances and many more. *Tickets available Mar 27.
Captivating melodies in full, orchestral color await. Rutter’s Suite Antique at the start with its gorgeous and springlike themes, Respighi’s Ancient Airs at the finish in dozens of captivating dances, and Britten’s Simple Symphony tying it all together for a chromatic spectrum of emotion. Join us for a delightful evening featuring a flute solo by our very own Amulet Strange! *Tickets available April 28
