Our season opens with two of the most-recognizable and thrilling pieces of the orchestral repertoire--Wagner’s Ride of the Valkyries and Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique. Ride of the Valkyries from Wagner’s epic Ring Cycle and popularized in Stanley Kubrick’s Apocalypse Now will launch us flying into our season of stories and legends. We welcome rising star Mary Elizabeth Bowden to our stage for the virtuosic Arutunian Trumpet Concerto, and conclude with Berlioz’s sensational and dramatic Symphonie Fantastique, one of the most storied and popular orchestral works of all time.
