RPO's Symphony 101 Concerts End This Year's Series with a Love Note

April 20, 2007

Hochstein and Roberts Wesleyan concerts conclude year-long musical examination of how composers evoke emotions through music

Rochester, NY – The sixth and final pair of the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra’s Symphony 101 Series concerts for the 2006-07 Season ends with a love note.  On Friday, May 11 at 7:30 p.m. at the Performance Hall at Hochstein, and Sunday, May 13 at 2:00 p.m. in the Hale Auditorium, Roberts Cultural Life Center at Roberts Wesleyan College, Music Director Christopher Seaman leads a lively demonstration of how composers evoke the emotion of love through their music.

Maestro Seaman and the RPO will explore numerous musical expressions of love by some of the world’s greatest composers.  From tragic love (Tchaikovsky’s Francesca da Rimini) to a loving tribute to a new home (Tobias Picker’s Old and Lost Rivers) to inspirational love (Beethoven’s Egmont Overture), melodramatic love (Mascagni’s Cavalleria rusticana) and more, these concerts provide a fitting conclusion to the series.

Music Director Seaman leads these engaging and innovative Symphony 101 concerts that feature discussion, musical examples, selections from significant works and complete pieces.  Following each concert, Mr. Seaman takes questions from the audience. 

General admission tickets for these performances are $22, available online 24/7 at www.rpo.org, by phone (454-2100) and in person from the RPO Box Office, and at any Wegmans.  RPO Box Office Hours are Monday-Saturday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. (non-concert Saturdays, 10 a.m.-3 p.m.).  Wegmans is open seven days a week.  A convenience fee may apply.

The Symphony 101 Series is sponsored by PAETEC Communications, Inc. Additional support for this series is provided by the National Endowment for the Arts and the New York State Music Fund, established by the New York State Attorney General at Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors. RPO performances are made possible in part with grants from the National Endowment for the Arts; the New York State Council on the Arts, a State Agency; the State of New York; Monroe County; the City of Rochester; and American Airlines, the official airline of the RPO.
