The Claflin Hill Symphony Orchestra

Join us for our Seventeenth Season opener as we begin a year-long “exploration” of the “Symphony form” – opening with the majestic “Egmont Overture” of symphonic giant, Ludwig van Beethoven, followed by two magnificent examples of the “symphonic genre” by Felix Mendelssohn and Johannes Brahms – whose life “bane” was to follow and labor in the shadow of the greatest creator of that form to date – and we think you’ll agree – they were more than equal to the task!

Cosi fan tutte

This popular operatic comedy, sung in Italian with supertitles in English, pairs Mozart’s glorious music with Da Ponte’s skillful libretto. Loosely translated as “they all do it”, fidelity is challenged in order that truth and wisdom might be gained, and the comedy of disguises juxtaposed with the power of deceit lead to an unexpected climax. William Lumpkin, Conductor; James Marvel, stage Director.
