2014-2015 Hilton Head Symphony Orchestra Season
For me, music is about passionate narrative. Whether its favorite Shakespearean epics set by Mendelssohn and Verdi, or an intensely emotional journey from tragedy to triumph crafted by Beethoven and Tchaikovsky in their fifth symphonies–the live symphonic experience leaves none unmoved. The 2014-2015 Hilton Head Symphony Orchestra season, Music of Dreams and Drama, explores some of the most emotionally intense works created for orchestra. From the brooding yet heroic Shostakovich Symphony No. 5 to effervescent overtures by Bernstein and Mozart, and ethereal works for string orchestra by Dvořák and Arvo Pärt, the dramatic range of my third season with the HHSO is breathtaking!
