The Ashland Symphony Orchestra is back on stage! We open our 2021-2022 concert season with a lifting musical journey celebrating love and fraternity, values that are keeping us together during these unique times. From Beethoven’s adoration sacrifice in his only opera Fidelio, we will land in the Caribbean region to experience the world premiere of Aquino’s exotic Lunga Pandemia, making us reflect in imaginative ways about how the pandemic has changed our lives.

We open with a work of uncommon beauty and feeling of timelessness: American composer George Rochberg’s Transcendental Variations, written as a response to personal tragedy. Mark Kosower, principal cello of The Cleveland Orchestra, will continue to transport and dazzle us with Boccherini’s Cello Concerto in D, G. 479 – a work that spotlights both the lyric and virtuosic aspects of the cello.
