Tara Simoncic HARRISBURG SYMPHONY ASSISTANT CONDUCTOR
Tara Simoncic, Assistant Conductor to Maestro Malina and the new Youth Symphony Music Director, joined the HSO in July 2010 from an appointment as Music Director of the Norwalk Youth Symphony in Norwalk, Connecticut. While with the NYS, she founded and conducted the Chamber Orchestra and collaborated with the Greenwich Ballet Academy. During her time as Music Director of the Norwalk Youth Symphony, she built the program from four orchestras to six, adding a very successful mid-level orchestral winds training ensemble as well as a top level chamber orchestra. In addition to her NYS position, she was also the Music Director and Conductor for the Histoire Chamber Orchestra, Conductor of the Flexible Orchestra (in NYC), Cover Conductor for the Manhattan School of Music (NYC), and Pre-Concert Lecturer and Assistant Conductor for the Greenwich Symphony Orchestra (Greenwich, CT).

Originally from Stockton, California, Ms. Simoncic grew up in a musical family. Her father a composer and her mother a flautist, Tara was encouraged to study several instruments, but chose to focus on the trumpet at the age of six. Tara was bitten by the conducting bug while pursuing her Bachelor of Music degree in trumpet performance at the New England Conservatory of music. There, she founded the Stravinsky Septet, an ensemble which toured New England with a staged production of Stravinskyâ€™s Lâ€™Histoire du Soldat and other works with similar instrumentation that were commissioned by the ensemble. Deciding to further her studies in conducting, she received her Masters of Music degree in orchestral conducting from Northwestern University. Her conducting training extended to Europe, where she has studied at the Canford Summer School of Music (England) and with the Bohuslav Martinu Philharmonic (Czech Republic), the West Bohemian Symphony Orchestra (Czech Republic), the Adygeya Republic National Symphony Orchestra and the Astrakhan Symphony Orchestra (Russian Republic). She studied with Zdenec Macal, David Gilbert, Iloh Yang, Victor Yampolsky, George Manahan, George 13 Hurst and Kirk Trevor.

The longer, warmer days of spring bring a bustle of activity at the Harrisburg Symphony. For starters, in addition to the March subscription concerts on the Capital BlueCross Pops and Masterworks Series, the annual Stuart & Friends concert will take place on Wednesday, March 23. This year’s concert will take place at the Rose Lehrman Arts Center at HACC. Come April we invite you to attend the “Painted Violins” champagne brunch on Sunday, April 3 at the Hershey Country Club. A dozen violins hand-painted by local artists, all of them beautiful and strikingly original works of art, will be raffled off. Entertainment will be provided by HSO violinist Susan Aquila (on her electric violin!) and her trio. Please visit the table in the lobby for more information. On Sunday, April 10 the HSO will present a Family Concert entitled “The Little Dragon” starting at 3:00 p.m. at Mechanicsburg Middle School. Irish melodies collide with eccentric characters and jaunty dances in a “musictelling” adventure about caring, courage, and the power of the imagination. HSO Assistant Conductor Tara Simoncic will conduct. On Wednesday, April 27 we begin a partnership with Appalachian Brewing Co. on Cameron St. in Harrisburg. On that evening the Night Fusion Series will present the very entertaining string quartet, Sweet Plantains, beginning at 9:00 p.m., upstairs in the Abbey Bar. Heading into May, the Symphony Society’s big springtime event this year will be “Hidden in Harrisburg, the Amazing Symphony Race” on Friday the 13th at the Harrisburg Hilton. This scavenger hunt will begin at 5:30 with hors d’oeuvres and then extend into the streets of Harrisburg as teams search for answers to clever clues relating to Harrisburg history, commerce and culture. No vehicle will be required. We encourage you to form a team and take part in this fun evening, all in support of the HSO. Tickets and more information about all of the above events are available online at HarrisburgSymphony.org. March is “renewal season” at the Symphony. As with any orchestra, our subscribers are the heart and soul of the HSO and we urge all of you to take full advantage of all the benefits that come with subscribing, including securing your preferred seating, and mail in your subscription as soon as possible. We join you in welcoming spring and thank you for being with us here today at the Forum. We hope you enjoy the concert...

Michigan clarinetist , born May 1984, has established himself during the last five years as America’s premier interpreter playing in a style and sound inspired by his hero Benny Goodman. Dave has led his sextet in thirty states and has performed with more than twenty orchestras in the USA and Canada for his Goodman Tribute Symphony Pops. Dave Bennett is a self-taught prodigy who began at age ten on a clarinet given to him by his grandfather. Although now still only in his mid-20’s Dave’s playing career goes back to age 14, when he began frequent tours on the “traditional jazz” circuit with a Saginaw-based dixieland band. At age 12 trumpet legend Doc Cheatham invited him to the bandstand of the famous Sweet Basil jazz club in NYC. At age 17 Dave won a competition over 600 entrants to guest solo with The Count Basie Orchestra. And Pete Fountain, upon hearing a tape of Dave, made an unprompted call to the teenager encouraging him: “you are on the right track.”
Capital BlueCross Pops
Dave has recorded with three of Goodman’s famous band members: guitarist Bucky Pizzarelli, pianist Dick Hyman and vibraphonist Peter Appleyard. All three endorse Dave as “the closest ever to Benny Goodman”.
In June 2010, Arbors Records released Dave’s Clarinet is King – Songs of Great Clarinetists. On this CD Dave Bennett performs tunes made famous by such players as Artie Shaw, Pete Fountain, Barney Bigard, Acker Bilk plus more Goodman. Bennett gives fresh and creative treatments to such classics as Nightmare, Stranger on the Shore, Where or When and Begin the Beguine. Dave Bennett’s musical abilities aren’t limited to jazz and swing. He is passionate about rockabilly, pop, country, and American “Roots” music, and even composes his own material. During recent shows, he sometimes performs the music of Jerry Lee Lewis and plays a mean boogie woogie piano. Dave also plays “rockin” electric guitar along the lines of his hero Brian Setzer…and he sings a few tunes in shows.
Carol McCartney’s impeccable vocals and finely-tuned musicianship are front-and-
center on stage and in recordings. She tours exensively, fronting major symphony orchestras in the U.S. and Canada with clarinet prodigy Dave Bennett. Carol has also appeared at many major jazz venues and festivals. She sits in often with John MacLeod and his Rex Big Band at the Rex Hotel, and has been featured on many recordings, including Bob Brough’s Like A Spring Day, Chase Sanborn’s Sweet & Low and JUNO-nominated Freeflight, the Big Band. Carol recently released her own jazz project A Night In Tunisia. She is the driving force, and some stellar players join as her guests to collaborate on a musical vision all her own. McCartney shines in arrangements designed to allow her to do what she does best: killer renditions of beautiful songs, with support from jazz greats such as Peter Appleyard and Guido Basso.

Bill Kanenson loved the Harrisburg Symphony. His fondness for the orchestra grew even deeper when Stuart Malina came on board. This performance of Stuart and Friends is underwritten by Marilynn R. Kanenson in memory of Dr. William Kanenson. 2011 marks the 7th year for Stuart and Friends. Each year, an outreach program for students who might not otherwise have the opportunity to hear classical music or to attend a concert, is provided through the generous funding provided by Marilynn Kanenson. Mrs. Kanenson wanted to honor the memory of her husband in a manner that was near and dear to his heart â€“ helping to foster an appreciation of music for young people with disabilities. Over the past few years, HSO musicians have travelled to the Capital Area Intermediate Unitâ€™s Hilltop Academy, to Marshall Elementary School (Harrisburg School District), and this year, to Steelton Highspire Schoolâ€™s special education classes for a program of classical music and conversation. Thank you to Marilynn R. Kanenson for her generous spirit and her love of sharing the music.

STUART & FRIENDS
is one of America’s most versatile and accomplished conductors in a wide variety of concerts, from masterworks and grand opera to pops. Maestro Malina made his Carnegie Hall debut in 2007 conducting a soldout performance with the New York Pops in an all-Gershwin tribute including “Rhapsody in Blue,” which he conducted while also performing on the keyboard. He won a Tony Award for orchestration with Billy Joel for the musical Movin’ Out, which he helped create with director and choreographer Twyla Tharp. He was music supervisor for both the National Tour and the London/European tour of the show. An accomplished concert pianist, Maestro Malina has impressive credits as a soloist, having performed throughout the United States, the Netherlands, and with the acclaimed Piccolo Spoleto Contemporary Music Festival. With members of the Pittsburgh Symphony, he was recently in residence at the Tianjin Conservatory of Music as conductor, coach, and chamber music pianist. Maestro Malina holds degrees from Harvard University, the Yale School of Music, and the Curtis Institute of Music, where he studied conducting with Otto-Werner Mueller. He has been Music Director and Conductor of the Harrisburg Symphony Orchestra since June 2000.
Odin Rathnam, since his critically acclaimed Lincoln Center debut in 1993, has established himself as one of the most passionate and versatile artists of his generation. He has received unanimous praise from critics and audiences for his “captivating temperament,” “brilliant technique” and “recalling the legendary violinists of the past.” A veteran performer at many major European and American festivals, he has also appeared in recital for Market Square Concerts, in Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall and in Carnegie Recital Hall, where Rathnam first appeared at the age of fifteen. As a soloist, he has performed with the Baltimore Chamber Orchestra, the New Amsterdam Symphony, the Columbian National Symphony, the Camden and Hayes Orchestras in England, the York Symphony, the Hershey Symphony, the Lancaster Symphony, the Central Pennsylvania Symphony and the Harrisburg Symphony. He is Concertmaster of the Harrisburg Symphony Orchestra.

Stuart & Friends: March 23, 2011
Baal Shem: Three Pictures of Hassidic Life Ernest Bloch (1880-1959)
Although Ernest Bloch was a Swiss Jew born in Geneva, he lived in the United States from the time he was 36 and became a US citizen in 1924. He taught at the Mannes College of Music and was also the Director of the Cleveland Institute of Music from 1920 to 1925 and the San Francisco Conservatory from 1925 to 1930. He lived in Switzerland during the 1930’s but returned to the US as anti-Semitism grew rampant. He taught at the University of California, Berkeley until his retirement in 1952. Important to Bloch’s music is its overwhelming emotional and spiritual power as clearly evident in Baal Shem: Three Pictures of Hassidic Life composed in 1923. In the first poignant and passionate “Vidui” (Contrition), violin and piano exchange extreme ranges of pitch that go beyond virtuosic display to suggest a tragic sense. While “Nigun” (Improvisation) is an unabashed showpiece with its leaps and double-stops and improvisational moments for the violin, it retains something of the spirit of the first movement in its expression of sadness. In “Simchas Torah” (Rejoicing), inspired by the biblical passage when Moses hands down the torch to the children of Israel, a bright ray of hope shines as the music pushes the violin to its limits with the piano a strong supporting partner.
Piano Trio in D Major, Op. 70, No. 1, “Ghost” Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827)
While subtitles can often be misleading, that is not the case in the famous “Ghost” Trio. It is called thus because of the forbidding second movement Largo taken from sketches Beethoven made for an opera based on Shakespeare’s Macbeth. The specific sketches employed in the Largo were intended to suggest the wellknown witches scene. It has also been implied that the despair associated with the movement might be based on Beethoven’s 24 growing awareness of his deafness.
More than an eerie tale, the “Ghost” Trio is another example of Beethoven’s exquisite compositional powers evident immediately in the first movement Allegro vivace con brio with is rhythmic power, singing lines for the cello, and the challenging scale work for the piano. So, too, is the last movement an ingenious stroke with its bright mood quite in contrast to the despair of the Largo. It is as if Beethoven comes to a resolution—both musically and spiritually—to the deafness that would face him. The work was composed, along with its companion piece, Op. 70, No. 2, in 1808 in Beethoven’s gracious Vienna apartment given to him by the Hungarian Countess Maria von Erdödy. He dedicated the trios to the Countess, a fine amateur pianist as well as patron.
Piano Quartet in E-Flat Major, Op. 47 Robert Schumann (1810-1856)
In examining Schumann’s music, we will try to avoid what Yael Braunschweig called in his recent New York Times article, “To Listen to Schumann, Bring a Couch,” “retrospective psychiatric diagnoses (that) shape the way people listen and what they hear.” Yet central to Schumann’s music is the reflection of his so-called “split personality,” that is, the free and happy Florestan side and the restrained and pensive Eusebius side. How much this reflects his own mental illness resulting in his attempted suicide in 1854 by a leap into the icy Rhine and his death two years later in a mental institution, we shall leave to the psychiatrists. What we need to study is the glorious result of Schumann’s compositional efforts despite his sufferings, probably not because of them. We might note, however, that Schumann was subject to the well-known conflict of two artists in a marriage, this time somewhat in reverse of Gustav and Alma Mahler or Ted Hughes and Sylvia Plath. On a tour of Russia with his more famous wife, Clara, he was asked whether “he, too, was a musician.” The brief but riveting Sostenuto assai that opens Schumann’s Piano Quartet quickly gives way to the powerful and expressive Allegro ma non troppo that dominates the first movement with its recurring themes and pulsing rhythm maintained by the piano. We have a momentary return to the Sostenuto before the themes are restated and developed in a livelier Allegro section which, after a sustained moment, leads to the thrilling Più agitato that concludes the movement. The staccatos of the second movement Scherzo are interrupted twice by more sustained Trio sections before the movement wisps into thin air. Then we are taken into the heaven of the Andante cantabile with its moving lyricism for each instrument in turn. The opening cello song is unforgettable, but the violin, viola, and piano all have their moments. The wonderful Finale seems to combine the power of the first movement with the lyricism of the third movement and the liveliness of the Scherzo. The masterful writing of the Piano Quartet is some of Schumann’s best. The Piano Quartet, completed in October of 1842, concluded Schumann’s year-long creative burst of chamber music that also included his Piano Quintet and his three Op. 41 string quartets. It was written for Count Matvei, an obviously accomplished amateur cellist, but given its premiere by professional musicians in Leipzig on December 8, 1844. The pianist was Clara Schumann. ©2011 Lucy Miller Murray (lucymillermurray.com)

Joseph K. Goldsmith
The Harrisburg Symphony Orchestra is the recipient of a generous bequest from the Estate of Joseph K. Goldsmith. The funds are to be used to support the Symphonyâ€™s operations and its mission of fostering an appreciation for and knowledge of music to enrich the cultural life of Central Pennsylvania. A lifelong resident of Harrisburg and World War II veteran, Joe joined his father and brother Richard at M. Lee Goldsmith Furniture, a business founded by his grandfather in downtown Harrisburg. He was a man of great humor and wit and, though a Dixie Land jazz aficionado, had a great appreciation for symphonic music.
Joe Goldsmith believed that we owed much to our community and that we were obligated to make it a better place. He was committed to his hometown and worked for its betterment.

Masterworks: March 26-27, 2011
Orchestral Suite No. 3 in D major, BWV 1068 (ca. 1720) Johann Sebastian Bach
Born March 21, 1685 in Eisenach, Germany Died July 28, 1750 in Leipzig From 1717 to 1723, Bach was director of music at the court of Anhalt-Cöthen, north of Leipzig. He liked his job. His employer, Prince Leopold, was a well-educated man, 24 years old at the time he engaged Bach. (Bach was 32.) Leopold was fond of travel and books and paintings, but his real passion was music. He was an accomplished musician who not only played violin, viola da gamba and harpsichord well enough to join with the professionals in his house orchestra, but also had an exceptional bass voice. He started the court musical establishment in 1707 with three players (his puritanical father had no use for music), and by the time of Bach’s appointment the ensemble had grown to nearly twenty performers equipped with fine instruments. It was for this group that Bach wrote many of his outstanding instrumental works, including the Brandenburg Concertos, the Orchestral Suites, the Violin Concertos and much of his chamber music. Leopold appreciated Bach’s genius, and Bach returned the compliment when he said of his Prince, “He loved music, he was well acquainted with it, he understood it.” Though the exact dates of Bach’s Orchestral Suites are uncertain, all four were composed during or immediately after the Cöthen period. Each of Bach’s four Orchestral Suites comprises a grandiose Overture followed by a series of dances of various characters. The aptly named “French” Overtures are based on the type devised by Lully — a slow, almost pompous opening section filled with snapping rhythmic figures and rich harmony leading without pause to a
spirited fugal passage in faster tempo. The majestic character of the opening section returns to round out the Overture’s form. The chain of movements that follows varies from one Suite to the next, though Bach’s sense of musical architecture demands that they create a pleasing balance of tempos and moods. The first such movement in the Third Suite bears the title Air, a general term used during Bach’s time for an instrumental piece in slow tempo with a sweet, ingratiating melody in the upper voice. This haunting, bittersweet music is one of Bach’s best-loved creations. Next is a pair of Gavottes, a dance of moderate liveliness whose ancestry traces back to French peasant music. The Bourrée, also of French origin, is joyful and diverting in character, and, when danced, was begun with a brisk leap, which is mirrored in Bach’s quick upbeat pattern. The Gigue was derived from an English folk dance, and became popular as the model for instrumental compositions by French and Italian musicians when it migrated to the Continent.
Viola Concerto, Op. 185 (1983), Zdenek Lukáš
Born August 21, 1928 in Prague Died July 13, 2007 in Prague
Zdenek Lukáš, one of the most important and prolific Czech composers of the second half of the 20th century, was born into a musical household in Prague on August 21, 1928. Zdenek Lukáš (pronounced ZDEN-yek LOO-kahsh) took lessons in theory and composition as a teenager and attended teacher’s college in Prague, and he combined his studies when he taught elementary school for five years after his graduation in 1948 by writing little pieces around pedagogical texts to aid his students’ learning and memorization. From 1953 to 1964, Lukáš worked as an editor and program director for Czech Radio in Pilzen, where he also founded and directed the mixed choir Česká Písen (“Czech Song”), for which he wrote original works and arranged many folk melodies while bringing the ensemble to international prominence. The range, idioms and expressive content of his compositions expanded greatly during the 1960s, when he returned to Prague to study privately with the composer, conductor and Prague Conservatory faculty member Miloslav Kabelác. Lukáš remained in Prague until his death there in 2007, teaching for brief periods at the Prague Conservatory and conducting the Czechoslovak State Song and Dance Ensemble, but mainly devoting himself to composition. He created nearly 400 compositions — six operas, seven symphonies, four dozen concerted works, a wealth of chamber and piano music, scores for radio plays, songs, accompanied and a cappella choral pieces, and many arrangements — that incorporate traditional Czech influences 30 into his distinctive modern style.
Lukáš composed his Viola Concerto in 1983 for Karel Špelina, Principal Viola of the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra and faculty member of the Prague Conservatory, who premiered the work with that ensemble and conductor Zdenek Košler on November 20, 1983. The first movement opens with aggressive figurations from the soloist but soon settles into the gentler mood implied in its title: Rapsodico. The themes are largely lyrical and folk-inflected, with occasional embellishments reminiscent of the decorations customarily applied to traditional Eastern European song and dance melodies. The second movement (Cantabile — “Singing”) is based on a lovely hymnal theme heard at the beginning and end to frame a more assertive central episode. The finale follows a modified sonata form, with a strongly rhythmic main theme, a quieter subsidiary subject, a thoughtful development section led by the soloist and a return of the opening material before a cadenza and a spirited coda bring the Concerto to a close.
The Unanswered Question (1906) Charles Ives
Born October 20, 1874 in Danbury, Connecticut Died May 19, 1954 in New York City The Unanswered Question, subtitled “A Contemplation of Something Serious,” is one of Ives’ most visionary and most popular works. It was written in 1906 along with a companion piece, Central Park in the Dark in the Good Old Summer Time (“A Contemplation of Nothing Serious”), when Ives was trying out all manner of sound combinations in his music. The Unanswered Question comprises three distinct kinds of music, superimposed: a string chorale, an unchanging trumpet phrase and a chattering woodwind response. Ives assigned these unlikely partners the following philosophical roles: “The strings play pianississimo throughout with no change in tempo. They are to represent the ‘Silence of the Druids — Who Know, See and Hear Nothing.’ The trumpet intones ‘The Perennial Question of Existence,’ and states it in the same tone of voice each time. But the hunt for ‘The Invisible Answer’ undertaken by the flutes and other human beings, becomes gradually more active, faster and louder.... ‘The Fighting Answerers,’ as the time goes on and after a ‘secret conference,’ seem to realize a futility, and begin to mock ‘The Question’ — the strife is over for the moment. After they disappear, ‘The Question’ is asked for the last time, and ‘The Silences’ are heard beyond in ‘Undisturbed Solitude.’” This turn-of-the-20th-century work continues to be disturbing, challenging and thought-provoking: “The world today makes us so aware of unanswered questions that the basic idea of the piece is easy to grasp,” wrote musicologist Edward Downes.
Symphony No. 8 in F major, Op. 93 (1812) Ludwig van Beethoven
Born December 16, 1770 in Bonn Died March 26, 1827 in Vienna
In early October 1812, the Linzer Musikzeitung carried the following announcement: “We have had the long-wished-for pleasure of having in our metropolis for several days the Orpheus and greatest musical poet of our time....” This “Orpheus” was Beethoven, and he had descended on Linz as the last stop in a summer spent taking the waters at Karlsbad, Franzensbrunn and Töplitz in an attempt to relieve various physical ailments. His interest in Linz, however, extended beyond the mineral baths into the private life of his younger brother, Johann. It seems that Johann had acquired a housekeeper, one Therese Obermeyer, and that her duties extended to, as the composer’s biographer Thayer put it, “something more.” Perhaps as much from jealousy as from moral indignation, the bachelor Beethoven did not approve of either the situation or this particular female (he later dubbed her “Queen of the Night”), and he took it upon himself, Thayer continued, “to meddle in the private concerns of his brother, which he had no more right to do than any stranger.” He stirred up a terrific row over this matter, and, after taking his concern to the local authorities, actually was awarded a decision to have Therese thrown out of town. Johann had had about enough by this time, and the upshot of all of Ludwig’s intrusions was that his younger brother married the housekeeper after all. Beethoven had been installed in an attractive room in Johann’s house overlooking the Danube and the surrounding countryside upon his arrival, and he worked on the Eighth Symphony throughout all this unnecessary domestic kerfuffle. Not the slightest hint of the turmoil crept into the music, however. It is actually the most humorous and “unbuttoned,” in the composer’s own description, of all his symphonies. At that time in his life (he was 42), Beethoven was immensely fond of a certain rough fun and practical jokes, and Sir George Grove believed that “the Eighth Symphony, perhaps more than any other of the nine, is a portrait of the author in his daily life, in his habit as he lived; the more it is studied and heard, the more will he be found there in his most natural and characteristic personality.” 32
Certainly this work presents a different view of Beethoven than do its immediate neighbors, and it is this very contrast that helps to bring the man and his creations more fully into focus. The compact sonata form of the opening movement begins without preamble. The opening theme (F major), dance-like if a bit heavy-footed, appears immediately in vigorous triple meter. The second theme, built on short sequentially rising figures, enters in the surprising tonality of D major, but quickly rights itself into the expected key of C major. The closing group consists of a strong two-beat figure alternating with a swaying, legato line for the woodwinds. The development is concerned with a quick, octave-skip motive and a rather stormy treatment of the main theme. This central section ends with one of the longest passages of sustained fortissimo in the entire Classical literature to herald the recapitulation with a great wave of sound. The long coda comes close to being a second development section in its mood and thematic manipulation. The second movement is a sonatina — a sonata form without a development section — based on a ticking theme in the woodwinds (actually an imitation of the metronome recently invented by Beethoven’s friend Johann Nepomuk Mälzel) and an impeccable music-box melody presented by the violins. The third movement abandons the scherzo of Beethoven’s other symphonies and returns to the archaic dance form of the minuet; its central trio features horns and clarinets over an arpeggiated accompaniment in the cellos. The length of the finale almost equals that of the preceding three movements combined, and it carries significant importance in the work’s total structure because of the diminutive size of the internal movements. In mood it is joyous, almost boisterous; in form, it is sonata-allegro, with enough repetitions of the main theme thrown in to bring it close to a rondo. The extensive coda actually occupies more time than the development, and maintains the Symphony’s bustling energy and high spirits to the end. ©2010 Dr. Richard E. Rodda

The Harrisburg Symphony Orchestra has launched the “Four Score and More” campaign to raise a minimum of $4 million in new endowment funds to sustain the Symphony and its programs. The “Four Score and More” campaign not only recognizes the Symphony’s 80 years of artistry and its impact on our community, but it also will enable us to broaden the Orchestra’s role as a cultural cornerstone for the entire Capital Region. The level of artistry achieved by our Symphony comes with a cost. As an example, expenses related to bringing our highly accomplished musicians to the Forum stage approach $1,200 per player per Masterworks weekend. For our larger programs, we employ as many as 100 professional musicians. That’s a potential cost well in excess of $100,000 for a single weekend! Every year, ticket sales cover only one-third of the Orchestra’s budget. The remainder must come from annual giving, underwriting, sponsorships, government and foundation support, the activities of the Symphony Society, the Cultural Enrichment Fund, planned giving, and income from endowment. Contributions to this campaign will be invested in the endowment for long-term growth, helping to ensure the financial and artistic health of this civic treasure. Each year a percentage is drawn from the endowment to support the Orchestra’s programs, grow educational initiatives, and create new programming. 100% of the funds raised for this campaign are directed to the Symphony’s endowment due to the generous underwriting of campaign costs.
Contact Jocelyn Bowman, Endowment Campaign Manager, at (717) 545-5527 to learn how you can invest in the Symphony’s future.
The “Four Score and More” Campaign is already off to a strong start with almost $2.1 million in gifts and pledges. We have secured over 50% of our $4 million goal! BStriving to exceed this goal will help to ensure that the Harrisburg Symphony will continue to be the Capital Region’s cultural jewel!

The Complete Bartok String Quartets
performed by the Calder Quartet Fri, April 8 & Sat, April 9, 2011
Four players bursting at the seams one moment, and the next whispering with the rapture of the blest. Bela Bartók’s six string quartets indeed cast an unparalleled emotional net. Fortunately, we’ve secured the services of LA’s finest, the Calder String Quartet. When it comes to playing Bartók’s hyper-expressive, hyper-demanding masterworks, they’re absolutely perfect. Dinner and a Concert! Join us in the gallery adjacent to the hall for a scrumptious dinner buffet before each concert. Fantastic acoustics! Free Parking!
