The musicians of the Festival Orchestra take the spotlight in this special performance highlighting the excellence of the ensemble. The featured masterwork of the concert showcases the orchestral grandeur of Strauss’ Also Sprach Zarathustra, a bold tone poem famously known in popular culture as the opening of 2001: A Space Odyssey. The monumental work was also the inspiration for John Williams’ Superman March, a piece which will open the evening. The remaining work of the concert features Festival Orchestra cellist Joel Noyes (Asst. Principal, Metropolitan Opera Orchestra) in Schumann’s masterful Cello Concerto, a work often regarded as the first great concerto of the cello repertoire.
