Provided by Manassas Symphony Orchestra
The Manassas Symphony Orchestra, augmented by talented student musicians, will be the largest orchestra ever to grace the stage of the Hylton Performing Arts Center, presenting its season finale concert, Musical Titans. The concert will take place on Saturday, May 14, 2016 at 7:30 p. m.
MSO Music Director James Villani will lead the performance of Gustav Mahler’s Symphony No. 1 which will feature 104 players, 18 of which will be students from several area schools, which include Battlefield, Broad Run, Osbourn Park, Patriot, and Stonewall Jackson High Schools from Prince William County; Centreville and Chantilly High Schools from Fairfax County. There is even a talented young performer from Franklin Middle School in Chantilly. The instrumentation for this massive symphony is also quite different than what is normally heard. There will be nine French horns instead of the usual two to four, five different kinds of clarinets, five trumpets, and a reinforced percussion section. This performance should not be missed.
The featured soloist for this concert is prize winning pianist Tomasz Robak, who will perform Ludwig van Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 4 in G major, Op. 58. Mr. Robak is a doctoral student at the renowned Peabody Institute in Baltimore, MD.
