the excitement grows for the 32nd Season of the Hilton Head Symphony Orchestra! Pre-Concert Talks and Post-Concert Receptions

Dear Friends, Last Season we initiated some new programs that you may want to take note of for the upcoming Season. We continually work to make your concert experience more enjoyable and hope you will take advantage of these new opportunities. Matinee Series Last year the Hilton Head Symphony Orchestra established a series of three Matinee concerts on Sunday afternoon at 4:00 pm. They were so successful that we are continuing this program this Season with three Sunday concerts in January and February. Additionally, a Monday matinee concert will be held on December 2 in addition to the evening performances of the holiday concert. We welcome all members of the community to join us at this convenient and family-friendly time and have instituted family and youth reduced-price tickets of $20 for adults and $10 or $5 for children, depending on their age, for these concerts. For an additional $10 to your ticket price, attendees are welcome to join us after the concert at the restaurant EAT! for tapas and symphony-priced drinks while meeting with Conductor Russell and the evening’s soloist.

T h e

Conductor Russell gives pre-concert talks about the upcoming concert one hour before each Sunday and Monday performance. He discusses the various musical pieces, background of the composer, and the historical and musical influences that inspired a particular piece of music. He explains the principal thematic material for movements that help familiarize attendees about what they are about to hear. Post-concert receptions are held in the Gathering Space immediately after the Monday concerts. The League of the HH Symphony Orchestra provides refreshments and attendees are given an opportunity to meet with the Maestro, soloist and orchestra members.

I hope you have an opportunity to enjoy these new and exciting additions to our concert season and I look forward to seeing you at the Symphony! Enjoy the Season!

Mary M. Briggs President and CEO

The energy and vitality of our orchestra is infectious, and their fresh take on the great masterworks has been a thrill to behold. From jubilant symphonies of Dvorak, Brahms, Haydn and Mendelssohn to cherished concerti by Bruch, Beethoven, Mozart and Prokofiev, and showpieces by Stravinsky, Handel and Gershwin, our next season brims with resplendent music and spectacular performances. I can’t wait to share concerts I have created specifically to celebrate the Holidays in December and the musical legacy of Pat Conroy and the Low Country in February--not to be

missed! My good friends Chelsea Tipton and Daniel Meyer join us to guest conduct, and our wonderful HHSO Chorus under the direction of Tim Reynolds, will join us for two programs. As always, I look forward to seeing you at our pre-concert chats and afterwards, or around the island and environs as we continue to build our music community together. Happy Listening!
