We open this breezy concert with the buzzing of the Wasps in Vaughan Williams playful overture to Aristophanes’ comedy, and then the Springfield Symphony is delighted to welcome Jon Manasse, one of the greatest clarinetists performing today, on a virtuosic concerto composed specifically for him. You’ll hear the clarinet like never before in this jazzy, lush, and show-stopping piece. Finally, we’ll hear the warm, light-hearted tunes of Bohemia in Dvorak’s beloved Symphony No. 8, full of folk music and spirited dance from Eastern Europe.
