The last symphony orchestra concert of the season will begin virtually on April 10 | muscat
MUSCATINE – This Saturday April 10, the MasterWorks 2020-21 season of the Muscatine Symphony Orchestra will end with a final concert.
Much like the other concerts this season, this one will be a virtual concert, broadcast on MSO’s Facebook and YouTube pages, as well as on the MSO website and Public Access Channel 9. The concert will begin airing at 7:00 p.m. that Channel 9 will begin broadcasting the concert at 7:30 p.m. This concert, along with all the others for this season, will then be available on the MSO YouTube page.
For this last concert, which will be called “Coming Together”, all sections of the symphony orchestra will come together and perform as a single larger group. Earlier this season, the symphony orchestra was forced to perform in smaller groups with a smaller number of musicians due to the current pandemic and social distancing guidelines.
With this concert, however, maestro Brian Dollinger will be able to use all sections of the symphony – brass, woodwinds and springs – in a way that really brings them together for what is sure to be an incredible and memorable final performance. .
The concert will also feature works by famous classical composers such as Mozart, Haydn Mendelssohn and Elgar. A new composer, David Stern, will also present a brand new piece at the concert, with the Muscatine Symphony Orchestra being the first to perform “Rhapsody” for violin and strings.
