Susquehanna Symphony Orchestra Music for a Spring Evening
May 18 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pmticket information available on their website
The SSO’s Spring Concert on Saturday, May 18, is entitled Music for a Spring Evening. Maestro Bair has chosen many gems for this concert, including a few works he has wanted to present to Harford County audiences for some years. The SSO will perform, for the first time, late classical composer Franz Schubert’s “Rosamunde Overture”, and French romantic composer Leo Delibes’ music from his ballet Sylvia, which concertgoers are sure to recognize. In addition, Baltimore composer Vivian Adelberg Rudow will join us for her Fanfare for My Hero in the Pinstriped Suit! The SSO has had a long association with the music of African-American composer William Grant Still, one of the great composers of the last century. The Orchestra will return to his “Archaic Ritual” which it performed in the 1990’s. Sensational young pianist Kara Iwanowski will join the orchestra for Dmitri Shostakovich’s 2nd Piano Concerto, which was written for the composer’s son upon his graduation from secondary school. This is also our annual Side-by-Side concert at which talented high school students will perform with the SSO members on stage.
