Dear friends,

Welcome

from the President & CEO

First and foremost, thank you for joining us at a summer concert! Many of the events on our summer series are considered Rochester staples, and it’s easy to see why: an evening with the RPO is a fantastic way to spend a summer night. From our musicians’ perspective, it’s a treat to travel and play in outdoor venues while the weather is warm. Presenting community concerts—events in city and suburban venues beyond Kodak Hall—is one way we’ve committed to giving back to our community. In fact, in 2017-18, more than 40% of our performances were educational or free community concerts.

RPO.ORG | 454-2100

Speaking of community, we’re proud to share that your support helped make 2017-18 another banner year for the RPO. This season saw record-setting ticket sales, including four sold out concerts—the most in a single season in RPO history. Because the RPO is the community’s orchestra, every dollar spent on attending an RPO performance is poured right back into the community. Your ticket purchases help us produce educational concerts that reach more than 16,000 students each year, and every visit to Kodak Hall helps drive business to area establishments that keep downtown Rochester vibrant. We hope to see you again in our 2018-19 season, which includes a visit from world renowned pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet, a night of Broadway smash hits with Hamilton star Leslie Odom, Jr., and showings of Harry Potter and the Chamber of SecretsTM and Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back - in Concert. For a full listing of 2018-19 performances, visit rpo.org. Tickets go on sale Friday, July 27 at 10 AM. As always, subscribers enjoy presale access now to these popular concerts, and can purchase tickets anytime. To subscribe, visit rpo.org/subscribe or call 585-454-2100. While ticket sales continue to climb, it’s important to note that they only cover 40% of our overall operating costs—the norm among orchestras nationwide. The remaining 60% is covered by our generous and loyal base of RPO donors. If you’re considering a tax-deductible donation, now is the perfect time—we recently announced a $300,000 Community Challenge, made possible by our Board of Directors who will give $2 for every $1 donated through August 1. To make your gift, call the Development Office at 585-399-3649 or visit rpo.org/ donate. Thank you and have a wonderful summer! Sincerely,

Curt Long President & CEO

WARD STARE Music Director

This season at the RPO, Stare will collaborate with Itzhak Perlman and returning favorite pianists Olga Kern and Misha Dichter. Stare will also lead a Beethoven Festival, Bizet’s Carmen in Concert, and two world premieres by celebrated composers Allen Shawn and Jennifer Higdon. 2016–17 season highlights included collaborations with Yo-Yo Ma and Grammy-winning violinist James Ehnes. Stare also led a three-weekend salute to the music of American composers, as well as Puccini’s La Bohème in Concert, and a world-concert premiere by AcademyAward winning composer Eliot Goldenthal.

2017–18 Season

Our Conductors

Appointed the 12th music director of the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra in July 2014, Rochester native Ward Stare has been described as “inspiring musicians to impressive heights” by The New York Times, and “a dynamic music director” by Rochester CITY Newspaper. This December, Stare made his debut at the Metropolitan Opera for nine performances of Franz Lehár’s The Merry Widow, with Grammy-winning mezzo-soprano Susan Graham in the title role.

Stare’s recent seasons have seen a number of highly anticipated debuts with orchestras around the world, including performances with the Baltimore Symphony, Sydney Symphony, Pittsburgh Symphony, Toronto Symphony, and the Calgary Philharmonic. Last season he made his debut with the Hawaii Symphony Orchestra followed by his return to the St. Louis Symphony in December. Stare’s frequent collaboration with the Lyric Opera of Chicago began with his debut in 2012 conducting performances of Hansel and Gretel; he returned in 2013 to lead Die Fledermaus, and again in November 2014 to lead Porgy and Bess to rave reviews. He made his debut with the Washington National Opera conducting Donizetti’s comic opera L’Elisir d’amore in 2014.

SUZY GORMAN

Stare served as resident conductor of the Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra from 2008 to 2012. In 2009, he made his highly successful Carnegie Hall debut with the orchestra, stepping in at the last minute to lead H. K. Gruber’s Frankenstein! The 2013–14 season saw his return to the Atlanta and Detroit symphony orchestras, as well as his debuts with the Syracuse Symphoria, the Jacksonville Symphony, and the Naples Philharmonic with Lang Lang as soloist.

12

Stare was trained as a trombonist at The Juilliard School in Manhattan. At 18, he was appointed principal trombonist of the Lyric Opera of Chicago and has performed as an orchestral musician with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and the New York Philharmonic, among others. As a soloist, he has concertized in both the U.S. and Europe. wardstare.com

Nearly one-third of all RPO performances are educational or community-related. In addition, WXXI 91.5 FM rebroadcasts approximately 30 RPO concerts each year. For more information, visit rpo.org.
