The orchestra's January 25 concert features legendary pianist André Watts who returns for the second year in a row. This year he will perform MacDowell's Piano Concerto No. 2. He played to a sellout crowd last year with a rousing crowd-pleasing response. The concert lineup also includes works from American composers Arthur Foote, Howard Hanson, and Walter Piston.
The February 16 CSO concert celebrates the 30th Anniversary of the Canton Symphony Chorus as they perform Brahms' German Requiem with the orchestra. Headlined by Rachel Hall (soprano) and Brian Keith Johnson (Baritone), the Chorus will be joined by the Malone University Chorus and members of the Wooster Chorus. The program also includes Mozart's Ave Verum Corpus.
Internationally-acclaimed banjoist Béla Fleck performs on the March 22 concert for a special presentation of his own The Impostor, Concerto for Banjo and Orchestra. Also featured are Béla Bartók's Romanian Folk Dances and César Franck's Symphony in d minor. (This concert has a special surprise at the end so make sure to stick around for the whole performance!)
The final concert (April 26) in the Final Four ticket package might be the most visually stimulating the Canton Symphony Orchestra has ever performed. Performed to Gustav Holst's The Planets, and created by the Houston Symphony in cooperation with NASA, this stunning production features photographs from rovers, satellites, radar images and computer-generated graphics - giving the audience the impression of circling individual planets.
The Final Four ticket package is only $70, $100 or $140 (Bronze, Silver, or Gold seats), up to a 30% savings over buying individual concert seats.
Gift Certificates are available in denominations ranging from $5 to $200 and may be combined to equal just about any amount. Certificates are good for two years from date of purchase and may be exchanged for tickets to any performance by the Canton Symphony Orchestra.
