The LaGrange Symphony Orchestra will open its new 2018/19 season with a concert Tuesday September 25th, 7:30 PM at Callaway Auditorium in LaGrange, GA. The kick-off performance for this dynamic season is fittingly called “The Beginning.” Three major works on the program include Bernstein: Overture to Candide, as part of a world-wide celebration of Leonard Bernstein’s 100th birthday. (You can read more about his life and prolific music career HERE.) Second is Mozart: Oboe Concerto, featuring Alexandra Shatalov Prior, LSO Oboe Principal. Mozart Concerto’s are considered some of his greatest achievements, and this is the only known concerto specifically composed for the oboe. Third will be Beethoven: Symphony No. 7 in A Major. This was a personal favorite of Leonard Bernstein during his conducting career with two of the world’s great orchestras: The New York Philharmonic and the Berlin Philharmonic.
