Loudoun Symphony Presents Shostakovich and Chaplin
February 24, 2018 7:30 pm - 9:15 pm
Loudoun Symphony Orchestra is searching for its next conductor and Maestro Jason Love, one of the contenders has prepared a program, Shostakovich and Chaplin which will be presented at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, February 24th at Riverside High School (19019 Upper Belmont Pl., Leesburg, VA 20147). The concert program includes well-known favorites by Brahms and Shostakovich. Written in the wake of a rebuke from Josef Stalin, Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 5 is one of the most moving and dramatic symphonies ever written while the Brahms’ Academic Festival Overture is joyous and fun-loving. Catholic University composer Andrew Earle Simpson’s new score to the classic Chaplin short The Immigrant rounds out this eclectic program. Audience members will help us choose the next conductor by providing feedback on the concert.
