The 2012–13 season of the Green Bay Symphony Orchestra marks the ensemble’s 99th season, a prolific run that dates back to 1914. Now in its second year under the baton of music director Donato Cabrera, the ensemble is ready to start things off on October 13 with an evening of Beethoven and Brahms. The night will include the brooding, booming attacks of the Egmont Overture and Brahms’s Violin Concerto, whose haunting oboe solo brings to mind a lonely mountaintop inhabited by a single, weeping cloud. In a more upbeat performance, on December 7 and 8, the GBSO will team up with the Dudley Birder Chorale to deck the halls with holiday classics. Other offerings include Mendelssohn’s Symphony no. 3, which takes center stage on February 2 to celebrate Scotland’s diverse landscape, culture, and sound with flowing strings and a flighty clarinet solo in the second movement.
