Manchester Symphony Orchestra takes
"Mostly Mozart" to Honeywell Center
The Manchester Symphony Orchestra visits the fabulous acoustics of the Honeywell Center in Wabash for a “Mostly Mozart” concert on Sunday, March 14. The 3 p.m. performance by the 71st season of this orchestra of community residents and Manchester College students, faculty and staff is free.
The Honeywell Center “is an amazing space,” says MSO Conductor Scott Humphries, who adds that the MSO audience also is pretty amazing, and “extremely supportive.” With that in mind, concert-goers should plan to arrive early; there are no reservations and seats will begin to fill at 2:30 p.m.
As the name implies, the March 14 concert features works by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. “As one of the finest composers in the history of music (in any genre), it is a thrill to conduct his music,” notes Humphries. The audience will recognize the challenging Symphony No. 40 in G minor. Also on the program is A Little Nightmare Music by Peter Schickele, based on Mozart’s Eine Kleine Nachtmusik.
However, the program is not all Mozart. Humphries has added A Salute to the Big Bands, arranged by Calvin Custer, and the lively, almost galloping Light Calvary Overture by Franz von Suppé.
