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!
After more than two years of searching, interviewing, and auditioning candidates, Auburn Symphony Orchestra is thrilled to announce new Music Director Wesley Schulz.
He will take the podium and lead our orchestra beginning in the 2018-2019 Season in October. Read the Auburn Reporter's full article on Schulz here.
