The Modesto Symphony Orchestra begins 2012 with a two-hour journey through the classical compositions of Mendelssohn, Beethoven, and Tchaikovsky. One hour before the performance, both those familiar with and new to classical music can learn more about the evening’s program and secret baton semaphoring at the pre-concert conversation with conductor David Lockington. Inside the Rogers Theater, meticulous audio specs lavish ears with lush sound. The theater’s shoebox design and retractable draperies tune the hall to coax precise reverberations from symphonic sounds.

The soft swells and turbulent storms of Mendelssohn’s The Hebrides (Fingal’s Cave) overture carom through the space before burrowing into ears. When the sea calms, the MSO’s 75 to 85 professional musicians welcome to their ranks pianist Jon Nakamatsu, a Van Cliburn International Piano Competition gold medalist. Nakamatsu opens Beethoven’s Piano Concert no. 4 in G Major with a solo journey around the room in a piano-shaped hot-air balloon. The final piece on the evening’s repertoire is Tchaikovsky’s Symphony no. 5 in E minor.

Customer Reviews

Be there early nd reserve your seats ahead of time. The symphony itself was magnificent and played beautifully. The Gallo Theater is beautiful as well.

The 1st half of the recent Tchaikovsky etc performance was great. The 2nd half not so great. I still love the Symphony though and have had season tickets in the past
