The 2021-2022 concert season will begin on Sunday, November 21, 2021 at 4:00PM at the Poway Center for the Performing Arts with
A Celebration of “The Music is Back”
First on the program is the “Roman Carnival Overture” by Hector Berlioz. This dashing music is the perfect choice to open the new season, with its scintillating brass, soft melodies, wild folk dances and more. Then comes the “Spanish Capriccio” by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov where all orchestra sections have chances to shine in this Spanish-flavored music with a Russian accent. The program will be completed with the ever-popular “Piano Concerto No.1” by Tchaikovsky, with the orchestra joined by our returning guest pianist Frederic Moyer.
The concert on Sunday, March 20, 2022 will feature the mighty Symphony in D minor by the French-Belgian composer César Franck, paired with another French masterpiece, the Cello Concerto No.1 by Camille Saint Saëns. The soloist for this performance will be our principal cellist Daniel Grab.
The third concert of the season on Sunday, May 20, 2022 will feature a varied program of number of delightful favorites. The highlight will be the “Fantasia para un gentilhombre” by Joaquin Rodrigo with guest artist Fred Benedetti, guitar. Also included are Mozart’s “Symphony No.39”, the two suites from “l’Arlésienne” by Georges Bizet and “España” by Emanuel Chabrier.
All performances will be presented at the Poway Center for the Performing Arts, the ideal local venue for our concerts and our home base.
