ECSO, Chorus to present a stellar program in Saturday's season finale at the Garde
What's the saying? "Go out with the Mozart 'Coronation' Mass, not a whimper!"
Or something like that.
For Saturday's final concert of a most excellent 2018-19 season, the Eastern Connecticut Symphony Orchestra, in conjuntion with the Eastern Connecticut Symphony Chorus, present a heavyweight program appropriately titled "Titans." And, indeed, Mozart's Mass in C major, K 317, the so-called "Coronation," is at the heart of the evening. Beethoven's Overture to The Creatures of Prometheus, Op. 43, gets the concert off to an impressive start. And Mahler's epic Symphony No. 1 in D major (Titan) will close the performance and another great year of music.
Kudos to all the musicians and singers, and of course ECSO music director Toshiyuki Shimada and Eastern Connecticut Symphony Chorus director Wendy Moy for their inspirational work and leadership.
Eastern Connecticut Symphony Orchestra and the Eastern Connecticut Symphony Chorus, 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Garde Arts Center, 325 State St., New London; $35-$65; also $12 tickets for people under age 40 and for active or retired military members; (860) 443-2876.
