The 2016-17 season opens with Dvorak -- and Beyer's Back! on September 24, with the return of homegrown prodigy ALEX BEYER at the piano with a Beethoven concerto. The concert will also feature Shostakovich's Jazz Suite #2 and Dvorak's celebratory 8th Symphony. GBS will also honor the career of our late conductor, Gustav Meier, by performing the very first piece he ever conducted in Bridgeport in 1966: Beethoven's Leonore Overture #3.
GBS Goes to the Movies, on November 12, will bring to the stage the great classics behind the movies. Spend Christmas Eve in Paris (December 17) at The Klein, as GBS performs the concert version of La Boheme, with renowned operatic soloists, and the Principal Orchestra of The Greater Bridgeport Youth Orchestras (GBYO).
2017 would be Leonard's Bernstein's 99th birthday, so we'll celebrate with Bernstein at 99! on March 18, which will also include Ravel's Tzigane (our own Deborah Wong solos on violin) and Debussy's Nocturnes. The Connecticut Chamber Choir and the Fairfield County Children's Choir will join us for this marvelous celebration. The season concludes as GBS Salutes Spring on April 22 with Beethoven's 6th Symphony, the famous Pastorale.
