MSO - A NIGHT AT THE MOVIES

No other composer in the history of cinema has had such a profound impact on an audience, and added so much texture to a film, as John Williams. Star Wars… Jaws… Superman… Harry Potter. These are just a handful of the scores we’ll feature during our final POPS concert, which honors the enormous legacy of this movie giant. Guest conductor Stuart Chafetz, who’s worked with musical legends, including Chris Botti, Michael Bolton and Marvin Hamlisch, adds a dynamic podium demeanor and refined sense of audience engagement that will help lift this program into a galaxy far, far, away.

MSO-TCHAIKOVSKY SYMPHONY NO. 5

It’s easy to fall in love while listening to this collection of passionate pieces from some of Russia’s greatest Classical composers… good thing it’s just in time for Valentine’s Day! Famed soloist Dylana Jenson returns to Modesto for a can’t-miss – and MSO premier – performance of Prokofiev’s Violin Concerto No. 2. Perhaps one of his lesser-known pieces, Symphony No. 5 has been characterized as “classic Tchaikovsky”: well crafted, colorfully orchestrated and delightfully melodic. An overall spirit of triumph unifies this vibrant and festive program.

MSO - MUSIC MEETS GRAFFITI

What better way to wrap up our season than with a program inspired by Modesto, its people and our wonderful community. The first half of the program will feature three original works from three local composers commissioned to create musical expressions of Modesto’s annual ode to cars, Graffiti Festival. Complete with images and video of this year’s Festival, the pieces will also feature original choreography from Central West Ballet. The Classics Season concludes with Gustav Holst’s enormously influential and enduring masterpiece The Planets.
