The Lima Symphony Orchestra joins with the Lima Symphony Chorus and the Bowling Green State University Choral Society to perform Sergei Prokofiev’s cantata Alexander Nevsky, a 13th-century tale of war, treason, and a hero that united a people. The concert concludes with Camille Saint-Saëns’ Organ Symphony, which combines virtuosic piano passages with the reverent harmonies of a cathedral-size pipe organ and marches to a finale dramatic enough for a battle or a montage of karate training.
The Lima Symphony Orchestra debuted 58 years ago in the Central High School auditorium. Since then, the orchestra has grown from a group of 50 volunteers to an ensemble of 75 professional musicians and one mime with an invisible trombone. In 1996, maestro Crafton Beck, who also serves as the music director of the Mississippi Symphony Orchestra, took the reins when Joseph Firszt retired after a distinguished 29-year career as the orchestra’s music director. As conductor, Beck has expanded the orchestra’s yearly performance schedule to include six subscription concerts, a family concert, two or more Mozart-by-candlelight concerts, and a New Year’s Eve pops concert.
