For the Holyoke Civic Symphony’s 52nd season, we’re focusing on some of our favorite symphonies: Schumann’s powerful 4th Symphony, Tchaikovsky’s familiar 5th Symphony, and Dvořák’s tuneful 8th Symphony. We hope that these are some of your favorites as well.
We will also be featuring four wonderful soloists: cellist Boris Kogan and violinist Ronald Gorevic, both from the Springfield Symphony; outstanding young local pianist Andrew D’Antonio; and the incredibly talented trombonist Matthew Russo from the Goodspeed Opera House. The orchestra and I are very excited to make music with these outstanding musicians.
The May concert this season will include the winner of our biennial Composition Competition. What exciting composer will we discover this time?
The Holyoke Civic Symphony always offers an intriguing and eclectic mix of music. Classical and popular music are often juxtaposed in the same concert, and great masterpieces from music history coexist with works that were written just yesterday. Our concerts are always fun, accessible, and educational. I hope to see you in the audience this season!
