Symphony Hall, Springfield Symphony Opening Night!!
Symphony Hall (34 Court Street, Springfield, MA 01103, Springfield MA)
Saturday, Oct. 22 conducted by JoAnn Falletta, featuring Zoltan Kodaly’s Dances of Galanta, Edward Elgar’s Cello Concerto with guest cellist Joshua Roman, and Antonín Dvořák’s Symphony No. 7.
Each work encapsulates the soul of a country—from Dvořák’s noble expression of his love for the Czech people, to Kodály’s wild recreation of a Hungarian gypsy band, to Elgar’s poignant grief for the tragedy of the first world war in England. The program is a heartfelt tapestry of three of the greatest works in our orchestral repertoire.
The season will feature six classical performances and two pops concerts under the leadership of a diverse group of guest conductors.
