Under the grand sweeps of conductor Christopher Zimmerman's critically acclaimed baton, the Fairfax Symphony Orchestra launches its 56th year of instrumental masterworks. The 2012–13 season kicks off on Saturday, September 22, with a concert that recalls the America of decades past. John Adams's The Chairman Dances – Foxtrot for Orchestra, an outtake from his political opera Nixon in China, bounces along with an ascending crest of industrious violins, all recorded by a mysterious man looming in the theater’s wings. The musicians continue to keep things sprightly with the first movement of Gershwin's Piano Concerto in F Major, which eventually slows to an introspective pace with its moonlit solo on the ivories.

On Saturday, November 17, guest conductor Kenneth Woods oversees an evening of characteristically bombastic Beethoven, from the thunderstorm brass of the overture Coriolan, to the jousting strings and brass of Symphony No. 2. The orchestra greets the world’s reawakening on Saturday, May 11, with a seasonal celebration of Verdi and Wagner.
