Pines of Rome

First symphony concert with new Music Director Wesley Schulz!

October 14, 2:30 p.m. at Auburn Performing Arts Center

 

Wesley Schulz, conductor

Randall Goosby, violin

 

Music Director Wesley Schulz begins his tenure with the Auburn Symphony Orchestra in epic fashion by putting the orchestra in the spotlight. These outstanding musicians will dazzle your senses as they perform two of Ottorino Respighi’s monumental tone poems, Fountains of Rome and Pines of Rome. The Eternal City comes to life through Respighi’s musical depiction of the landscape, people and festivals of Italy. It takes an extra large orchestra to perform this work and the ASO is happy to welcome high school and college brass players from around the Pacific Northwest to bring Respighi’s music to a stunning conclusion. The hall will literally be FULL of music and musicians!

The program will open with the celebratory Millennium Canons by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Kevin Puts. Also featured is rising violin sensation Randall Goosby, a laureate of the 2018 Sphinx Competition.  Goosby will perform Eric Korngold’s cinematic Concerto for Violin. Don’t miss your chance to be a part of the next chapter of Auburn Symphony Orchestra’s musical history!
