May 20 | 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
This concert combines two events: the annual Paint to Music Art Show which will be held in the lobby of Bates Recital Hall prior to the concert. Artwork created by area students while listening to Pines of Rome will be arranged into a slide show with the music selection in background. Students and their families will be invited to view the artwork.
Afterwards, in the Recital Hall, the orchestra will perform Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 5 as the sole selection on the concert.
- SHOSTAKOVICH: Symphony No. 5 in D minor, Op. 47
- Allegro non troppo
The ACO continues to embrace the classics as well as explore the future. In order for classical music to truly realize its potential as a relevant and important art form it must embrace its future as much as its past. With this in mind, the ACO will maintain its commitment to experiment with programming that presents beloved classics alongside new and/or eclectic works, some of which might be considered off-beat, cross-genre, or even radical.
