The instrumental virtuosos of the Topeka Symphony Orchestra engage audiences in euphonic performances of classical music’s most cherished works as Dr. John Strickler bids farewell after 23 years of steadfast conduction. February of the 2012 season sees Strickler steering the orchestra through “Mozart & More,” a rousing set featuring Wolfgang’s Impresario Overture and a special performance of Harvey’s Concerto Antico by the 20-fingered Nicholas Ciraldo. For “Cinema Classics,” guest conductor Christopher Kelts and acclaimed soprano Lillian Sengpiehl perform selections from blockbuster flicks. Finally, the symphony celebrates the legacy of Dr. John’s magic wand in “Fabulous Finale”, where guest pianist Julius Kim joins Strickler for a farewell bash that showcases Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto no. 1 and Shostakovich’s Symphony no. 5 before concluding with bittersweet joy as the band dumps a giant vat of Gatorade on their departing coach. White Concert Hall sports up to 1,300 seats, giving mellifluous sounds ample room to play Duck, Duck, Goose with patrons’ ears.
