A Tribute to Marvin Hamlisch
Broadway vets Cady Huffman and Karen Mason join guest conductor Michael Berkowitz for a tribute to the celebrated composer, who racked up three Oscars, four Grammys, four Emmys, and a Tony Award prior to his death in 2012.
- Selections from A Chorus Line: the Pulitzer Prize-winning musical about Broadway dancers going through auditions introduced the world to showstoppers such as “The Music and the Mirror” and “What I Did for Love”
- Selections from The Way We Were: both the title song and Hamlisch’s score—which soundtrack a WWII-era romance—won Oscars, and “The Way We Were” would go on to become one of Barbra Streisand’s most recognizable songs
These compositions from Beethoven and Dvorak each celebrate nature, thus heralding the arrival of spring. Cellist Johannes Moser joins the JSO for Dvořák’s Cello Concerto.
- Dvořák—In Nature’s Realm: as part of the “Nature, Life, and Love” trilogy, this was written by Dvořák at his home in the forest of Vysoká, which no doubt helped convey his adoration of the natural world
- Dvořák—Cello Concerto: after reading through Dvořák’s concerto, a friend of his remarked “Why on earth didn’t I know that one could write a cello concerto like this? Had I known, I would have written one long ago.” That friend’s name? Brahms.
- Beethoven—Symphony No. 6: sometimes called Pastoral, the piece marvels at nature’s beauty and power in five movements celebrating violin-toting birds, a bubbling brook, and a thunderstorm
The Jacksonville Symphony held its first concert in 1950. Tickets were $1 each. Although inflation has taken its course in the half-century since, the Jacksonville Symphony has kept an eye on accessibility. They've partnered with entertainers ranging from Jack Benny (back in 1970) to Luciano Pavarotti to popular adult-contemporary musicians such as Jim Brickman. Each year, they give tens of thousands of schoolchildren the chance to participate in youth-oriented symphony events. And for music-lovers who can't make it to the JSO's dedicated venue, the highly harmonious Robert E. Jacoby Symphony Hall, there are Monday-night radio broadcasts.
