The Alexandria Symphony Orchestra has moved audiences with interpretations of classical and contemporary masterpieces for more than a half-century. “Our City, Our Symphony” celebrates the orchestra’s ties to Alexandria with a collection of local talent exploring the works of international geniuses. The performance opens with Mendelssohn’s Hebrides Overture in B Minor, Op. 26, which touts foreboding and triumphant themes inspired by the dark mouth of Fingal’s Cave on Staffa, an island off the Scottish coast, and the $20 bill Mendelssohn once found there. Concertmaster Claudia Chudacoff then steps into the lead for Mozart’s Violin Concerto no. 4 in D Major, trilling through blindingly paced explorations of the scales. The program also includes a number of special-guest groups, including the Alexandria Choral Society with a performance of Bach’s Komm, Jesu, komm!, as well as the Virginia Bronze Handbell Ringers of Northern Virginia and the Heritage Signature Chorale, who will perform a world premiere of River Poem, commissioned in honor of Alexandria.
