MONTGOMERY, MENDELSSOHN & BACH
SATURDAY, APRIL 17, 2021
7:30 PM (MST)
Conductor: Norman Huynh
Featuring: Sue Makeever, Principal Flute
The final free livestream concert of the season features our very own principal flute Sue Makeever, sharing her interpretation of J.S. Bach’s Orchestral Suite No. 2. Opening this program is a contemporary work, Strum, by composer Jessie Montgomery. Her piece was described by The Washington Post as “…wildly colorful and exploding with life.” To conclude the concert, we explore the genius of a young Felix Mendelssohn who wrote twelve string symphonies between 1821-1822. You will listen in awe to his Sinfonia No. 7 when the realization hits that he was only 13 years of age at the completion of this work.
The Symphony wishes to thank David Ross and Risi for their season sponsorship along with Thomas J. Scanlin and Stephen Schachman and Ritva Porter for sponsoring this performance.
