DEAR LOVERS OF SYMPHONIC MUSIC, DEAR FRIENDS OF THE MSO,
Our 20th season was such a blast for all of us, and we are so excited to share and grow with you as we enter our 21st! Beginning and ending with Beethoven, this is a season for lovers of great masterworks, that will also feature star performers.
With Stefan Jackiw in the fall playing for us the timeless Beethoven Violin Concerto followed by Dvorak’s lush Symphony No. 7 and complemented along with a piece by one of France’s foremost living composers Regis Campo, who will come especially to present his masterwork!
In November we will play Mozart’s Sinfonia Concertante with the best duo
can dream of Kurt Nikkanen, Concertmaster of New York City Ballet on violin and Jonathan Carney, Concertmaster of the Baltimore Symphony on viola! The concert will also feature one of Haydn’s London Symphonies, an absolute symphonic masterpiece, his Symphony No. 102!
For our Holiday concert, the very special Karpov sisters will join us, one sings Opera and the other Jazz and Pop. Both are highly talented and should give us a memorable performance like no other!
New Year’s Eve in Easton will be so inspiring with Mezzo-Soprano Jessica
Renfro and a few other vocalists, for an energetic ring into the new year!
In March we will welcome guest conductor Andrews Sill, in Schubert’s moving
Symphony No. 4, and the first performance by our brand new Young Artist
Finally, in April, the rising star Irish pianist Michael McHale will join us in
Ravel’s most jazzy and fun Piano Concerto in G Major, followed by the most epic
all, Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9, with one of the best lineups of vocalists ever, including the captivating Kevin Short singing the baritone part, joined by the wonderful Southern Delaware Chorale Society and the amazing Carter Legacy Singers.
We can’t wait for you to join us as we transcend into musical bliss with these masterworks!
