One-Night-Only Gala Concert to Feature Celebrated Cellist Yo-Yo Ma
The Orlando Philharmonic announced its 25th Anniversary Season today, including a one-night-only gala anniversary concert featuring acclaimed cellist, Yo-Yo Ma and violinist Colin Jacobsen on Tuesday, May 8, 2018 at the Bob Carr Theater.
The 25th Anniversary Season includes five concerts in the FAIRWINDS Classics Series, five programs in the Pops Series and five concerts in the Focus Series. The 2017 Sounds of Summer Series and the 2017-2018 Women in Song Series will be announced at a later date.
“Our 25th Anniversary Season is really going to be special because we have amazing and diverse programming with world premieres by local composers, the great musicians of our orchestra, and Yo-Yo Ma is performing with the Philharmonic for the first time,” said Eric Jacobsen, music director.
As the Orlando Philharmonic celebrates its past during the anniversary season, it also looks toward the future with the groundbreaking of Steinmetz Hall at the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts scheduled for Monday, March 6.
“There’s never been a more exciting time for the Orlando Philharmonic,” said Christopher Barton, executive director. “There’s so much to look forward to with the groundbreaking of Steinmetz Hall, the Yo-Yo Ma Gala Anniversary Concert next year, a new season that offers something for everyone and a community-wide anniversary celebration that will allow everyone to celebrate with us.”
