Maestro Aaron Collins talks about the 10th Anniversary Gala Concert:
 In this BIG year for your Space Coast Symphony Orchestra, you are invited to join in the celebration of 10 years of extraordinary music making at the 10 Year Anniversary Gala Concert.

We reached out to our incredible musicians and asked for input for this special concert. Together they selected a powerful program featuring works by Hindemith and Franck, along with a World Premiere from Space Coast Symphony Orchestra favorite Christopher Marshall. This is what concertgoers will experience: 

The concert opens with the World Premiere of Aue!   

For three years, New Zealander Christopher Marshall lived in the idyllic surroundings of Samoa and his Aue! conjures up its endlessly fascinating atmosphere and sounds, its hypnotic languor, and popular dances.

From there, SCSO dives right into Hindemith's masterpiece, Symphonic Metamorphosis of Themes by Carl Maria von Weber.  The Symphonic Metamorphosis is, quite simply, a fun piece of music, a pouring forth of high spirits and joyous sounds. Even the title is a joke of sorts, its grandiose verbosity belied by the playful puckishness of the music it describes.

Hindemith used tunes from Weber’s piano works and a melody from his Overture to Turandot. He deliberately picked melodies that were not, as he put it, “Weber at his best.” This gave him more latitude for play. As the word metamorphosis implies, the melodies, while recognizable, are expanded and transformed with imaginative harmonies and orchestral colors. The concert closes with Cesar Franck’s richly romantic and heroic Symphony in D minor, one of the most beautiful symphonies in the repertoire. 

At the concert, renowned artist Christopher Maslow will reveal a newly commissioned piece of art commemorating the Space Coast Symphony's 10th Anniversary.
