Winter Concert Playlist
Maestro William Morse hand-picks his favorite music
Greetings Jefferson Symphony
members and valued supporters,

You are invited to listen to and enjoy selections from our February 14 concert programming. 
This email provides you with YouTube links to some wonderful performances of the repertoire published in our season brochure.

We regret not being able to present this program live to our public, however, we invite you to enjoy these great masterpieces.
Dr. William Morse
I have hand-picked some very notable performances of our scheduled program. My intent is to provide you with a pleasant and entertaining substitute and I have chosen excellent performances of this season's repertoire. These are, in my opinion, very exceptional performances, which can be a good evening's entertainment -- perhaps even a bit of a Valentine's Day celebration. Each performance is on YouTube and I strongly recommend playing these on your TV or home theater. -- Dr. William Morse
DVORAK: Symphony No. 9
"From the New World"

"The first piece is Dvorak's New World Symphony. It is performed by the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra, and conducted by Sergiu Celibidache. He was Europe's premiere conductor of his generation. Although not widely known in the United States, his work with orchestras is unprecedented!" says Maestro Morse.  
Featured Artist: STAS VENGLEVSKI
music for bayan accordion
The brilliant artistry and musical virtuosity of Stas afford an expanded dimension in music and an innovative musical adventure to the audience. "Our guest was to be Stas Venglevski, on Bayan accordion. He is absolutely a world-class performer. Enjoy!" offers Maestro Morse.

BORODIN: Polovtsian Dances

"The performance by a wonderful youth orchestra (Akademia Filmu) is refreshing to hear young musicians playing at this level. Also, the youthful players add an element of excitement and energy to the performance," says Morse.  
"Bravo! Encore!"
Extra selections for more cultural entertainment

With Best Regards,

Dr. William Morse
