Maryland Symphony Orchestra Finds Perfect Pitch in Scenic Beauty of Frostburg State University Campus
Group Performs at FSU Oct. 13 as Part of its Silver Anniversary Season
Residents of Allegany County have much to look forward to during the fall: the spectacular showcase of trees changing color, cool, sunny days in the mountains— and the annual performance of Hagerstown’s acclaimed Maryland Symphony Orchestra, a concert that draws classical music enthusiasts from throughout the region.
Under the exuberant baton of music director and conductor Elizabeth Schulze, the Maryland Symphony Orchestra will perform its much-anticipated annual fall concert at 8 p.m. Friday, Oct. 13, in the FSU Performing Arts Center’s Pealer Recital Hall. The performance, part of the ensemble’s Silver Anniversary Season, features guest artist and virtuoso violinist Nicolas Kendall and includes three major works by three beloved composers.
The orchestra will open with Shostakovich’s “Festive Overture” in honor of the 100th anniversary of his birthday. The concert will also include one of Tchaikovsky’s most enduringly popular works, “Symphony No. 5, Op. 64 in E minor.” Kendall will perform Sibelius’ virtuosic “Violin Concerto, Op. 47 in D minor.”
Co-presented with the Allegany Arts Council, the Maryland Symphony Orchestra concert is a fall tradition that is not to be missed!
