Community Concert

x_symphony2The Poway Symphony Orchestra is branching out this fall, bringing its November performance to the heart of 92127. The orchestra’s Nov. 18 concert will be held at the Del Norte High School auditorium – a first for the community. The group has long performed three concerts a year at the Poway Center for the Performing Arts, but this year, they’re taking the opportunity to expand their outreach for listeners of all ages.

“Our patrons who attended past concerts have often expressed how pleased they were hearing the live symphonic music performances,” said Bo Matthys, Orchestra Development Director. “Such learning and enriching experience can happen at any age. That is the mission of the Poway Symphony Orchestra: to play the great music of the composers of history for the benefit of all in the community.”

The concert will open with the overture to Mozart’s The Magic Flute. Next, Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto will feature soloist Victor Diaz Guerra, a graduate from the prestigious Colburn Conservatory in Los Angeles. The concert will end with Brahms’s Symphony No. 1. “A more representative work of romanticism music can hardly be found,” Bo said. “This is Brahms at his best.”
