An exhilarating musical journey across three continents: from Wagner’s explosive opera music to the intimacy of Barber’s famous Adagio for Strings, we will land in Latin America to experience the heart pounding rhythms of Ginastera’s dances. We welcome renowned French cellist Sebastian Hurtaud in his ASO debut, bringing us his fabulous performance of Elgar’s monumental Cello Concerto.
 
Postponed until 2021-2022
Let us take a trip through time, focusing on the epicenter of European classical music: Vienna. Dress up in your favorite outfit for Johann Strauss’s festive overture to Die Fledermaus, an opera about a costume ball. During this 250th anniversary year of Beethoven’s birth, we need no further excuse to play one of his finest and liveliest symphonies, the Seventh. In between is a more recent and still relatively unknown Viennese gem by Friedrich Gulda performed by Mark Kosower, The Cleveland Orchestra’s principal cellist. This eclectic and entertaining concerto deftly blurs the idioms of composers such as Beethoven and Strauss, and includes elements of jazz, rock, polka, classical, and more!
 
Postponed until 2021-2022
A musical gift for the entire family! Share the warmth of the season with this evening of traditional carols and holiday favorites featuring the Ashland High School A Cappella Choir and other area choirs.
