Before films came to have sound, composers wrote music to use as accompaniment. In this program we travel back to the Golden Age of Hollywood to explore music from the origins of orchestrated film music.

MAY 


Darkness & Light

In the final program of the season, we are thrilled to give the world premiere of a newly commissioned work by Cody Criswell, as well as a performance of Schubert’s Symphony No. 4 in C-minor.  In this early, yet mature symphony, Schubert accepts the fact that the elements of darkness and light maintain an equivalent place in our existence. Join us on this fascinating musical voyage!
