Wilmington Symphony Announces 2014-15 Masterworks Series Concert Season
WILMINGTON, NC July 22, 2014 – The Wilmington Symphony Orchestra is proud to announce its 2014-15 Masterworks Series Concert Season, “Stars. Planets. Magic.” This 43rd concert season is both welcoming and rewarding for audience members with something for everyone, including great works by composers such as Bach, Rachmaninoff, Mozart, and Gustav Holst. The 2014-15 concert season is sponsored by Reeds Jewelers. Individual tickets go on sale August 1st at the Kenan Auditorium Ticket Office.
Don’t miss Opening Night on September 20, which begins with Mozart’s delightfully lyrical Concerto for Flute and Harp, featuring Christina Brier (harp), and Mary Jo White (flute), and Carl Nielsen’s Symphony No. 4, “The Inextinguishable”.
In October, Wilmington favorite Domonique Launey joins the Wilmington Symphony for the mighty Third Piano Concerto of Rachmaninoff (“Rach Three” as it is known among pianists). Also on the concert is Benjamin Britten’s picturesque “Four Sea Interludes” from Peter Grimes.
BachFest on February 7 offers a generous selection of the master’s orchestral and choral music, described as “the most persuasive rendering of transcendence there is.”
Gustav Holst’s sonic thriller The Planets headlines the March 21 concert, which also includes the talented winners of the Richard R. Deas Student Concerto Competition.
Finally, in April the season finale showcases Mozart’s The Magic Flute, a fully-staged performance with the UNCW Opera Outreach Program. An enchanting way to end the season!
