Thank You for a Wonderful Season!
The 2016-17 Concert Season was so full of highlights and outstanding musical moments. Here are just a few…
• Our opening concert on October 2, 2016, featured Tony DeSare who wowed the crowd with his performance of Gershwin’s much-beloved Rhapsody in Blue.
• We were proud to host contemporary composer Christopher Theofanidis, present his brand-new work Dreamtime Ancestors and bring the composer to a local school to talk to kids about his vision and profession.
• Our March Brilliant Baroque concert at First Presbyterian Church of Glens Falls was perfectly suited to the venue and vice versa, while Principal Oboist Sherwood Wise performed a powerfully beautiful solo work with the orchestra.
• Our 2016-17 Season ended on a spectacular note, with our very well-received May 14 concert featuring the entire Firebird Suite by Stravinsky.
We thank our patrons and general audience for their enthusiastic response to the orchestra’s performances this season, and we look forward to seeing you all at our upcoming concerts and events for our 2017-18 season, to open on September 24, 2017.
