The Programs

Dare to Transcend

As guest soloists, a pair of ambitious young sisters team up to tackle Brahms’ Double Concerto. Cicely and Madalyn Parnas carry on the legacy of their grandmother—the acclaimed cellist Leslie Parnas—in performances that the the New York Times has noted for their “electricity and drama.”

  • Horner—Music from Braveheart: The first of composer James Horner’s three collaborations with director Mel Gibson, the score to Braveheart adds extra dramatic tension to the tale of Scotland’s hard-won independence.
  • Brahms—Double Concerto for Violin and Cello: Written as an offering to reconcile with Brahms’ old friend, violinist Joseph Joachim, this unconventional work eschews bombast in favor of an invitingly playful melody.
  • Beethoven—Symphony No. 7: The stately second movement was so popular during its 1813 premiere that it had to be played twice to placate the crowd, then a third time to make them put their clothes back on.

Dare to Follow Your Heart

  • Doyle—Music from Sense and Sensibility: A gentle thread of romanticism runs through this score from Patrick Doyle, which earned him the first of his two Academy Award nominations.
  • Mendelssohn—A Midsummer Night’s Dream: Composed intermittently over almost the entire span of the composer’s career, the musical accompaniment to Shakespeare’s play features one of the most iconic organ pieces of all time: The Wedding March.
  • Mozart—Selections from The Magic Flute: The overture opens with a portentous blast of horns, giving way to strings that swell into a merry jig.

Alexandria Symphony Orchestra

When Kim Allen Kluge took over as music director of the Alexandria Symphony Orchestra in 1987, the outfit was made up of a small but enthusiastic group of community musicians. Sensing the potential of the orchestra, Kluge augmented the ensemble with freelancer virtuosos, quickly establishing the ASO as the premier professional symphony in northern Virginia. Today, the collective performs in the elegant Schlesinger Concert Hall on the Northern Virginia Community College campus, which makes for an acoustically friendly venue and a convenient base of operations for pranks on the Dean.
