We open our season with an all-time favorite – Scheherazade, featuring our concertmaster, Jenny Grégoire. The concert includes Capriccio Espagnol, another Rimsky-Korsakov favorite. These two amazing works are convincing proof of why Rimsky-Korsakov is considered a master of orchestration.
From Music Director Scott Speck:
"It gives me great pleasure to announce the 2022-2023 season of the Mobile Symphony. Your orchestra is back in full force, filling the Saenger with the astonishing sounds of Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade and Capriccio Espagnol, Dvorak’s New World Symphony, Copland’s Rodeo, William Grant Still’s Afro-American Symphony, Tchaikovsky’s Romeo and Juliet, and even the greatest hits from Wagner’s Ring Cycle!
We’re thrilled to welcome violinist Tessa Lark for the first time, playing the Sky concerto written just for her. Pianist Joyce Yang also makes her Mobile Symphony debut with Rachmaninoff’s Second Piano Concerto. We’re shaking things up with a lively and virtuosic mandolin concerto, composed by our friend Jennifer Higdon especially for guest mandolinist Avi Avital. And we welcome back the beloved The University of South Alabama concert choir for an amazing concert conducted by Alabama-native Norman Huynh.
I hope you can join us for this stellar season."
