Since its inception in 2005, Newark-Granville Symphony Orchestra has permeated surrounding communities with first-rate symphonic entertainment. This March, the ensemble maps out a musical road trip across the euphonious landscape of America, beginning by toting listeners through the Western plains of Copland’s Billy the Kid suite. After a brief detour past the sun-splashed baseball fields and panhandling cellos of Joan Tower’s Made in America, internationally acclaimed pianist and chair of the piano department at China’s Shenyang Conservatory of Music Dr. Tianshu Wang joins the orchestra on a key-tickling traipse around Gershwin’s New York City streets. Adventurous conductor and music director Timothy Weiss captains the harmonic cavalcade, which features more than 75 musicians corralled from the Central Ohio area. Inside Denison University’s historic Swasey Chapel, attendees can appreciate century-old architecture that plays host to religious services, world-class musical performances, and field trips for aspiring chimes.
