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 Goes to the Movies, on November 12, will bring to the stage the great classics behind the movies. GBS brings you the great music behind the movies - Beethoven 7 from the King's Speech, the Barber Adagio from Platoon, the Mascagni Intermezzo from The Godfather III, and Scott Joplin's rags from The Sting, among others - then moves into the great orchestral scores from Gone With The Wind, The Magnificent Seven, The Wizard of Oz, and more, before launching into the thrilling music of John Williams - Star Wars, Raiders of the Lost Ark, and Schindler's List. It's a night of romance and adventure not to be missed! With guest conductor Ted Sperling, who is currently conducting the revival of Fiddler on the Roof on Broadway.
