Welcome to our 2013 Inaugural Season Flashback! If you missed it, we featured exciting classics from Beethoven, Mozart, and Mendelssohn and fresh works from contemporary composers as well.


A Premiere on Chinese New Year

The Berry Center
7:00 pm

Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5
Mozart’s “Magic Flute” Overture
Dello Joio’s “Choreography”
Chen’s “Sprout”

What better way to kickstart a new orchestra and ring in the Chinese New Year than with an ever-popular classic like Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5 and a newer piece, “Sprout,” from one of today’s most prolific and dynamic female composers, Chen Yi. To round out our first program, we present Dello Joio’s sprightly “Choreography” and Mozart’s enduring overture from “The Magic Flute.”


A Family Affair: The Mendelssohns

Mendelssohn’s Symphony No. 3, “Scottish”

It’s a family affair as we bring you unrivaled masterpieces by Felix Bartholdy Mendelssohn and his sister, Fanny Hensel. This concert features the vigorous Overture in C Major by Fanny Mendelssohn Hensel and the emotional “Scottish” Symphony by her more well-known brother, Felix Mendelssohn. Sandwiched between the works of Felix and Fanny are Anton Arensky’s luxurious “Variations on a Theme by Tschaikovsky” and energetic selections from Leonard Bernstein’s West Side Story.
