Midcoast Symphony Orchestra Celebrating 25th Anniversary
There will be lots of excitement on October 26! That is the opening performance of your community orchestra, The Midcoast Symphony Orchestra, for the 25th consecutive season. No holds barred this time! “Opening Night” will feature a truly world-class pianist, Lise de la Salle (try “google”), direct from Paris who will perform Rachmaninoff’s “Piano Concerto #3”, one of the most challenging pieces in the piano repertory. This is a very rare opportunity to hear and see one of the most talk-about young stars in today’s performing artists circle.
The orchestra will also perform Brahms’ lovely Symphony #2 that will round out a concert worthy of our 25th Anniversary Season. For tickets call 846-5378 or go on line at midcoastsymphony.org
