The second half of the concert will feature a medley of pieces concert-goers may know by heart including TV crimefighter theme songs such as Dragnet, The Untouchables, Mission Impossible, Hawaii Five-O, Hill Street Blues, among others. Other pieces include 007: Through the Years and "Bacchanale" from Samson and Delila.
"The 2018-2019 season is inspired by heroes of all kinds, and it's fitting we start with heroes from the big and small screens," said Lawrence Golan, Music Director of the York Symphony Orchestra. "We are excited to go on incredible adventures through music with our audiences this season, and this concert is sure to resonate with both the young and young-at-heart who grew up cheering for their favorite crime stoppers."
