Garland Symphony Orchestra's
2016-2017 Season, Symphony Goes Wild!

Composers have always taken inspiration from nature, so it is no surprise that many have picked up their pens to give us musical depictions of the fascinating creatures with whom we share the planet. Throughout the 2016-17 Season, the talented musicians of the Garland Symphony Orchestra will offer our audience the most delightful and entertaining of these philharmonic fauna, from the smallest (Shostakovitch's gadfly) to the largest (Saint-Saëns’ elephants). Our musical zoo will include bears (Haydn and Bartok), horses (Auber), penguins (Scott), and even a cow (Milhaud). A few mythical animals will come to musical life, as well, including Stravinsky’s Firebird and Debussy’s Faun.

The 2016‐2017 Season will feature Greek pianist, Andreas Kerkezos, performing Mendelssohn’s Piano Concerto No. 1 in G Minor, the always popular Holidays with the Symphony performance, as well as violin prodigy, Kiarra Saito‐Beckman, performing Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto in D Major, Op. 35, and the 12th Annual Great Movie Scores Quiz.

The GSO is going wild, so be sure to subscribe now as this is a symphonic safari you won’t want to miss!
