“This season brings to life orchestral works that will spark the imagination and carry everyone to worlds full of color and wonder,” Mann said. “There is something that everyone will recognize in every concert, and there are new works that will draw listeners in and carry them away into timeless stories.”
The season opener, “Orchestral Splendor,” features performances of Berlioz’s Le corsair, Griffes’ The White Peacock, Schumann’s Symphony No. 1 “Spring” and the Alabama premiere of a new work by composer Christopher Theofanidis, Dreamtime Ancestors. Theofanidis will join the TSO and speak at the Cheers and Chat event before the concert at 6:00 p.m.
Familiar pieces during the upcoming TSO season, led by Maestro Adam Flatt, include Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake; Ravel’s Le tombeau de Couperin and Daphnis et Chloe, suite no. 2; Mozart’s Marriage of Figaro Overture; and Respighi’s Fountains of Rome. The Symphony will also hold its annual TSO Christmas event, featuring the Alabama Choir School, Prentice Concert Chorale performing holiday favorites. In February, renowned pianist Amy Yang will join the TSO to perform Schumann’s Piano Concerto, and in March, the Family Discover Concert and Instrument Petting Zoo will be held.
