Established as a humble community orchestra more than 30 years ago, the Tuscaloosa Symphony Orchestra has swelled in string, horn, and percussion stature on the shoulders of talented musicians led by their new, accomplished conductor, Adam Flatt. In their Valentine’s pops concert, Paul Houghtaling and the university’s Opera Theatre join Maestro Flatt, who will summon the most romantic notes from the violins’ strings, the French horns’ brass valves, and the whistling elves that live under the hardwood stage. The evening’s program aims its quivered bow at a host of classical favorites from operatic and Broadway scores. The French Quarter of 19th-century Paris will douse listeners with sophisticated insouciance when pieces from Puccini’s La Boheme spill their symphonic sounds. The tropics of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s South Pacific will gently billow past ears before they hear music from Cole Porter’s Kiss Me Kate.
All members of the audience may potentially wrap their wrist in a white-gold-and-diamond bracelet, donated for the evening’s raffle by a local jeweler. To claim their prize, the winner must be present in the 1,000-seat hall, which proportionally mirrors the dimensions of Vienna’s Musikverein concert hall, famous for hosting the Archduke’s annual bird-calling competitions.
