2021-2022 Matinee Series
Matinee Series Sponsor: Kevin Smith, Blue Ocean Planning, Ameriprise
These three concerts make up our Matinee Series. These concerts will take place at the King Center in Melbourne on Saturday afternoons at 2:00 pm.
PROGRAM 1 – LETTERS FROM HOME
January 22, 2022 | 2:00 pm
Holly Mulcahy, violin
CONCERT SPONSOR: BSO South Guild
COLEMAN – Seven O’Clock Shout
CLINTON – The Rose of Sonora for violin and orchestra
DVOŘÁK – Symphony No. 8
Home is where the heart is. The composers on this program take us home through incredible storytelling, sentimentality, and rustic folk songs. Holly Mulcahy performs The Rose of Sonora, the violin concerto she commissioned from film composer George S. Clinton and premiered with the Chattanooga Symphony in 2019.
PROGRAM 2 – THE WONDROUS WORLD OF JOHN WILLIAMS:
A 90th BIRTHDAY TRIBUTE
February 5, 2022 | 2:00 pm
CONCERT SPONSOR: Nash & Kromash, LLP
Music from Star Wars Sponsor: Martha Sinclair
This program will celebrate the incredible, wondrous mind of John Williams, about whom Steven Spielberg said: “Without John Williams, bikes don’t really fly, nor do brooms in Quidditch matches, nor do men in red capes. There is no Force, dinosaurs do not walk the Earth, we do not wonder, we do not weep, we do not believe.” We’ll hear selections from many of his award-winning scores, including Harry Potter, Star Wars, Jurassic Park, Indiana Jones, and more.
PROGRAM 3 – CLASH OF THE TITANS
March 12, 2022 | 2:00 pm
Paul Huang, violin
CONCERT SPONSORS: Dr. Richard Weber & Family
Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto Sponsor: Hugh Normile
BEETHOVEN – Leonore Overture No. 3
TCHAIKOVSKY – Violin Concerto
SHOSTAKOVICH – Symphony No. 1
We’ll start with the third of four overtures Beethoven wrote for his only opera, Leonore (title later changed to Fidelio). Paul Huang will perform Tchaikovsky’s only violin concerto, once considered “unplayable,” and we will hear the work that made young Dmitri Shostakovich famous almost overnight.
