Framingam: MSO presents gala performance
October 27, 2013| $27
Hopkinton-based Metrowest Symphony Orchestra has announced its upcoming season of four regular concerts, plus an exciting collaboration with ESL Theater in a June Concert of Broadway Show Tunes.
The Symphony's first performance this season unites music of Dvorak, Puccini, and Saint-Saens Oct. 27, at 3 p.m. This gala performance – the powerful 7th Symphony by Antonin Dvorak, a heartwarming excerpt from Puccini's opera “Manon Lescaut”, and a tip of the cap to Halloween in Saint-Saens” “Bacchanale” – will take place at Framingham's Joseph P. Keefe Vocational Technical High School.
Metrowest Symphony also plans a Holiday Christmas Festival for Dec. 8, which will include excerpts from “The Nutcracker,” Grieg's very lyrical “Peer Gyn” Suite No. 1, Haydn's “Overture to the Seasons” and collaboration with Rene Pfister and the singers and dancers from Berklee College of Music.
The MSO's March 9 concert presents a performance by a Young Artist, chosen during the winter via competition, of a concerto of his or her choice, accompanied by the orchestra. This performance will also include collaboration with the Franklin Arts Company ballet dancers and a new composition by Panos Liaropoulos.
The Symphony's season closes May 18 with a performance of Shostakovich's “Symphony No. 1” and Prokofiev's beautiful “Romeo and Juliet.”
All concerts will be performed in the Joseph P. Keefe Technical High School auditorium, 750 Winter St., Framingham; parking is available, and the auditorium entrance is on Fountain Street.
Tickets are $20 (seniors $15, and students: free). Please note: admission to the Oct. 27 concert will be on a donation basis. Tickets will be available for purchase at the door or online at www.metrowestsymphony.org.
