1. MAHLER SYMPHONY NO. 3

2. WICKED DIVAS

Christopher Wilkins, conductor • University of Central Florida Women’s Chorus, Dr. David Brunner, director • Florida Opera Theatre Women’s Chorus, Robin Stamper, director • Florida Opera Theatre Youth Program, Robin Jensen, director

Former Principal Pops and Resident Conductor Andrew Lane returns to the podium in this concert of diva showstoppers featuring the high-flying Broadway Wicked stars Alli Mauzey and Nicole Parker, performing selections from the Tony Award-winning musical, along with favorites from Chicago, Ragtime, Phantom of the Opera and more.

SPONSORED BY THE FRIENDS OF THE ORLANDO PHILHARMONIC Mahler’s Third is his “Pastorale Symphony”—an epic ode to nature, beginning with the imposing march of spring arriving in the Austrian Alps, and concluding with music of overwhelming beauty, described by Mahler as the embrace of divine love.

Alli Mauzey & Nicole Parker

A legendary pianist performs Beethoven’s majestic ‘Emperor’ concerto. Two musical tributes sustain the heroic mood: Stella Sung’s salute to the Philharmonic’s own heroes, and Elgar’s masterpiece honoring his closest friends. SUNG | Promenade (world premiere) Commissioned in honor of Lynn & Chuck Steinmetz, 2012 John Blackburn Distinguished Service Award recipients ELGAR | Enigma Variations BEETHOVEN | Piano Concerto No. 5 ‘Emperor’

Albert-George Schram

The brooding emotional drama of the Fifth Symphony is classic Tchaikovsky. Rossini’s genius for melody and comedy permeates his popular Semiramide Overture. For pure American lyricism, no work outshines Barber’s Violin Concerto, performed by the incomparable Sarah Chang.

Slavic music has a unique warmth and depth of feeling. It is often inspired by folk music, and has been made famous by generations of great string virtuosi who have championed it. Tchaikovsky, Borodin and Dvořák lead the way.

Zimmerman’s Coffee House was Bach’s musical home for secular music. There he performed his Brandenburg concertos, orchestral suites, secular cantatas and music by others he admired, including Vivaldi and Telemann.

Haydn enjoyed the perfect musical laboratory in Esterhazy. His prince loved music and generously funded an exceptional orchestra. Haydn’s experiments could be outlandish, but they changed the course of musical history.
