Matthew Halls, Conductor
Greg Zelek, Organist
|RHEINBERGER||Organ Concerto No. 2|
|BEETHOVEN||Symphony No. 7|
Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony is not famous for the fire and muscle of his Third and Fifth, but rather for the slow and second movement. A rhythm that feels like the pulse of life runs as a current under a soulful theme full of beauty and longing. Organist Greg Zelek returns to the mighty Bryan Concert Organ to begin the program with Joseph Rheinberger’s lush Second Organ Concerto. Acclaimed British conductor Matthew Halls returns to lead the Symphony through this profound journey.
Concerts begin at 7:30 PM. Performances are expected to last between 60 and 75 minutes and there will be no intermission. Masks must be worn at all times. PROGRAM NOTES
