Sensational symphony! Enjoy enduring classics, stunning modern works, and acclaimed guest artists in professional symphonic performances led by Maestro Bruce Hangen.
“At last we will be back on stage performing live symphonic music in front of a live audience! Our 47th Season promises to be an outstanding one with great masterworks we all love to hear, works to broaden our horizons, and fantastic soloists from within the Orchestra of Indian Hill who will share their talents. Come, enjoy!”
The elegant musicianship of Principal Cellist Young Sook Lee in a Haydn concerto, Mendelssohn’s “Reformation” Symphony, and inspirational spirituals by Adolphus Hailstork will comfort and elevate our spirits.
Principal Bassoon Hazel Malcolmson takes center stage in Zwilich’s tour de force concerto, along with Coleridge-Taylor’s witty Rhapsodic Dance and the ever-popular Scheherazade of Rimsky-Korsakov.
Concertmaster Alice Hallstrom will bring Bruch’s romantic Scottish Fantasy to life, while Bizet’s melodious “L’Arlesienne” and a truly evocative work by African-American composer Florence Price, frame this exceptionally tuneful program.
A classical treat! We’ll go back in time to the late 1700s with Mozart’s “Jupiter,” his dad Leopold’s Toy Symphony, plus two by Haydn, including his Horn Concerto No. 1 featuring Principal Horn Michael Bellofatto.
Three diverse works that are uplifting as well as glorious: Borodin’s popular Polovtsian Dances, American composer Missy Mazzoli’s shimmering “These Worlds In Us,” and the incredibly triumphant Symphony No. 5 of Shostakovich.
Our 47th season finishes up with two of the greatest hits by two iconic composers: Beethoven and Brahms! Each composer’s Symphony No. 4 will have its turn in a program Bruce describes as “great for everyone’s heart and soul.”
