Dear Friends of the Middletown Symphony Orchestra
Our 2014-2015 Season "Magical Music!"
I really love vocal groups and close harmony. I literally grew up on the Hi-Lo's and later The Singers Unlimited and
most recently Take 6. So I am thrilled that one of the very finest groups of all time will be our guests in November! In a
rare performance with symphony orchestra, The Four Freshman will bring their vocal AND instrumental talents to our
stage. The Beach Boys were directly inspired by them, and you too will thrill to their lush arrangements and sound.
A season is not complete without a salute to the masters of the classical era, and we celebrate two of the greatest with
a bright Beethoven Overture and a complete Mozart Symphony. We are coupling these with a powerful romantic work
by Finland's national composer, Jean Sibelius. Our January concert celebrates this composer's 150th anniversary year
with his very popular Symphony No. 2.
Our March program acknowledges another 150th anniversary - this time it's French composer Paul Dukas. We open with his brassy
brilliant Fanfare to La Peri, and close with his most famous Sorcerer's Apprentice - "Magical Music!" We will also feature the MSO String
Section on this concert with British composer, Philip Lane's delightful Pantomime. There's much more contained in this concert program.
It's jam-packed with great music. Don't miss it!
Our season will close in May with a wonderful collaboration between the Middletown Lyric Theatre and your Middletown Symphony.
Lyric's actors will take the stage with delightful symphonic accompaniment to tell the unforgettable and moving story of The Trumpet Of
The Swan. Tony Award winning Broadway composer, Jason Robert Brown, has masterfully set this popular novel by E. B. White to music.
This is a one-time-only event that you won't want to miss!
So that's it! A Season of "Magical Music!" designed especially for you. So please Order Your Tickets Now, and plan to be with us for all
of this Season's Concerts. You will be glad that you did! And we will be very happy to see you!
Sincere best wishes,
