Enter to Win Tickets! Classical Masterpieces Highlighted in Symphony’s Upcoming Concerts

Some of the greatest classical music ever written will be featured at the Susanville Symphony’s ‘Classical Masterpieces’ performances being held this weekend at the Assembly of God church on Richmond Road. The selections are a carefully curated collection spanning the history of western music.

“The origin of this concert came about when my father passed away last year,” explains Symphony Conductor and Artistic Director Benjamin Wade. “I wanted to do a concert that highlighted many of his favorites.”

According to Wade there is a story behind every piece to be performed.

Rather than making this simply about his father Wade pointed to several long-time symphony supporters who have passed away in the last year, saying that he wants this to be a tribute for all of these ‘cornerstone music lovers.’

The concert will feature some of the greatest works of all time including Schubert’s final symphony. Schubert’s 9th has been called Symphony in C Major The Great and its difficulty will showcase the talent of the Susanville Symphony musicians.

A Special Performance

Have you ever wanted to go back in time and watch Yo Yo Ma perform when he was 18? Or see John Williams first conduct and compose?  Well now is your chance to see one of the truly great violinists of the next generation.

The concert will feature 18-year old music protégé Oliver Lietner. A student of Reno Philharmonic assistant Concert master Carol Laube, Lietner will be performing Prokofiev’s Violin Concerto #1, one of the most difficult pieces ever written for his instrument.

“Having already been accepted to Yale and many other top educational institutions around the United States, Oliver is an exceptional individual and his future in and out of the music world will be profound,” says Wade.

Performances are Friday, March 2nd at 7:00p.m. and Saturday, March 3rd at 2:30p.m. at the Susanville Assembly of God Church.

Premium seats are $30 each, general admission is $22 and you can buy tickets at Margie’s Book Nook or Axia Home Loans.
