The 2017.18 season opens with a program that is a perfect microcosm of the entire season, showcasing the individual and collective talents of the SPCO musicians, as well as the depth and variety of the SPCO’s repertoire. The program opens with Jessie Montgomery’s Banner, a multi-layered and multi-cultural take on the Star Spangled Banner, followed by Ginastera’s Variaciones concertantes, which features all of the different instruments of the chamber orchestra in solo roles. Closing the program is Beethoven’s Triple Concerto featuring our very own Associate Concertmaster Ruggero Allifranchini and Principal Cello Julie Albers with the brilliant American pianist Orion Weiss in his SPCO debut.
