The Bucks County Symphony has informed us that there will NOT be a slide show accompanying their performance of Gustav Holst’s “The Planets” at their Spring Concert on Sunday, April 28th at 3:00pm at Central Bucks High School South.
The Bucks County Symphony, the premier community orchestra in Bucks County, is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization.
Since the orchestra’s creation 60 years ago, its mission has been to serve the community by providing residents the opportunity to experience great classical music and internationally known artists at local, affordable venues.
The orchestra musicians range from talented high school students to experienced community members, who perform five concerts each year with energy and passion, under the skillful and dynamic leadership of Maestro Gary S. Fagin.
The concert season consists of a Fall, Winter, Spring and Pops Concert, as well as an annual Youth Concert featuring the winner of the Symphony’s annual youth concerto competition, and performances by the Symphony musicians and Central Bucks student musicians.
The annual Pops Concert traditionally features a Broadway performer. The Symphony’s Winter Concert will be held on Sunday, February 24th at 3:00pm at Central Bucks High School South.
The orchestra will perform Mozart’s “Coronation Mass,” featuring internationally acclaimed coloratura soprano Maria Aleida Rodriguez and the Central Bucks South Symphonic Chorale, directed by Cynthia E. Young.
The orchestra will also perform Mahler’s evocative “Symphony No. 4 in G Major,” featuring Miss Rodriguez singing the solo soprano role.
On Sunday, March 24th, three-time Tony nominated Broadway singer/actress Marin Mazzie will accompany the Symphony at its annual Pops Concert, at Delaware Valley College. She will sing favorite Broadway hits as well as the symphonic orchestra premiere of Maestro Fagin’s “Cantata for Huddled Masses” based on the Emma Lazarus poem inscribed on the Statue of Liberty.
The Symphony’s Spring Concert on Sunday, April 28th at 3:00pm at Central Bucks High School South, will be headed by violinist Francesca dePasquale, of the legendary Philadelphia Orchestra De Pasquales, performing Max Bruch’s “Violin Concerto No.1.”
The exciting concert finale will feature Gustav Holst’s “The Planets,” accompanied by a spectacular slide show of our solar system. Tickets are $18 per person ($20 at the door); $15 for seniors. Students are admitted free of charge. Tickets for the Pops Concert are $60.
