Bay Atlantic Symphony Orchestra presents a magical matinee perfect for an early Spring afternoon. You’ll be warmed inside by this concert filled with a kaleidoscope of ravishing orchestral colors and sonorities. William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream has magical elements that can be scary and wondrous one minute and deliriously joyous the next. Seventeen-year old Felix Mendelssohn captures these emotions perfectly in A Midsummer Night’s Dream Overture, a favorite with both orchestra musicians and audiences. Maurice Ravel’s Le Tombeau de Couperin was composed as a contemporary version of the 18th century dance suite, as well as an homage to friends lost in World War 1. According to Bay Atlantic Symphony Music Director Jed Gaylin, “it’s both elegant and evocative. There’s always something mysterious, however, lurking beneath the surface.” The finale is Ludwig van Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 4 considered one of the greatest piano concertos ever written. It will be performed by internationally renowned pianist Terrence Wilson. Buy tickets online at bayatlanticsymphony.org.
