Fans of the symphony should mark their calendars for the start of the Alexander Dreyfoos School of the Arts concert season. Philharmonic Concert I is set for Tuesday, September 27, starting at 7:00 p.m. at the school’s Meyer Hall. The season’s inaugral performance features selections such as the Overture to the “Abduction from the Seraglio” by Wolfgang Mozart, Symphony No. 2 in E minor, movement 1 by Sergi Rachmaninoff, and four dance excerpts from Rodeo, a ballet scored by American Aaron Copland based on American folklore.
This year’s head of the schools Friends of the Orchestra support group Patti Rezakhani said her team will be working hard this year to promote attendance at all the upcoming concerts. “These students work so hard and practice so diligently to put on a great performance and hone their skills,” she stated.
