  2015-16 SEASON ENDS WITH A BANG Over 1000 flock to The Klein to experience "Northern Lights." NEW SEASON ANNOUNCED! More events coming:  Gershwin in Weston, and music under the stars (indoors and out). The crashing chords of Stravinsky's Firebird Suite closed the 2015-16 season with an exclamation point.  The huge crowd was immediately on its feet as Maestro Jacobsen and the GBS orchestra took their bows.  The concert began with the soft tones of Grieg's Morning Mood, then moved into the emotional strains of Elgar's Cello Concerto, with a solo by renowned German cellist JAN VOGLER.  After intermission, Sibelius' Finlandia rocked the house, followed by Mirage, a new composition written by Swedish composer Tobias Brostrom especially for Jacobsen's Knights.  This led seamlessly into the Firebird Suite for a dramatic ending to the 70th Season. RESERVATIONS FOR 2016-17 SEASON SUBSCRIPTIONS ARE NOW AVAILABLE BY CALLING GBS AT (203)576-0263.  (See below) On Sunday April 24, listeners were treated to an afternoon of Gershwin performed by Dr. Orin Grossman, pianist at Emmanuel Church in Weston.  See photos of the event by clicking the Events tab. More is to come: A LITTLE NIGHT SKY MUSIC   On May 21, GBS will partner with the Discovery Museum to present an evening of math and music in the planetarium of the Discovery Museum in Bridgeport.  Space is very limited, so reserve early for this very special evening with GBS musicians under the stars.  (Click the Events tab.) BARNUM FESTIVAL SKYBLAST CONCERT AT SEASIDE PARK, June 25 at the bandshell.   For the third year in a row, Eric Jacobsen brings GBS and soprano Sara Heaton to Barnum's great park on the Sound.  Bring a picnic supper and enjoy patriotic music, with the traditional 1812 Overture to signal the start of the fireworks.  ADMISSION IS FREE -- come one, come all!  The Skyblast Concert will also be the centerpiece of a reception to benefit GBS and the Barnum Festival Foundation.  Watch for details! THE 2016-17 SEASON:  FROM BACH TO BERNSTEIN  opens September 24 at The Klein.  We open with the return of homegrown prodigy ALEX BEYER in a Beethoven piano concerto, followed by Shostakovich's  Jazz Suite #2 and Dvorak's Eighth Symphony.  (Click the Events tab for more details.)
