Our fourth Barnum Festival concert the best one yet!

Perfect weather, thousands of people, fantastic fireworks, and the best music on earth made for a memorable evening at beautiful Seaside Park in Bridgeport on June 24.

Eric Jacobsen conducted our musicians in stirring patriotic songs -- Stars and Stripes Forever, the Washington Post March, the Armed Forces Medley, America the Beautiful, and, of course, our national anthem, then launched into previews of next season:  Carmen and instrumentals by the great African-American composer Scott Joplin (who was born nearly 150 years ago -- 1868 -- and died 100 years ago this past April).  Marvelous homegrown talent -- Bridgeport's own Maureen Hamill -- sang great Broadway numbers, with help from the kids from the ASK (After School at The Klein) program.  GBS finished the 1812 Overture on cue with the start of an epic pyrotechnic display that rocked the large crowd.

DON'T MISS THIS NEXT YEAR!  GBS is certainly looking forward to a return engagement!

With the 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution coming up in October, we got to thinking:  despite all the tragedies launched by the Russian Revolution, great music did emerge from Russia -- some in protest, some in propaganda, and some in triumphant escape.  We open on September 16 with a musical overview of the Russian Revolution -- before and after:  the music of Glinka, Paert, Rachmaninoff and Shostakovich.  Later in the season we'll hear the effects of the Spanish Civil War, the French Revolution, and the American Revolution!  Don't miss a single concert!   IT'S HERE!  OUR 72nd SEASON!   How does music respond to revolutions? With Revelations! The Russian, French, and American Revolutions, along with the Spanish Civil War, anchor our new season.  Click here to find out more!     Bach and Beethoven closed our 71st Season on April 22 at The Klein.   Guest Conductor Jonathan Yates charmed and thrilled our audience. Our final season concert included Stravinsky's Dumbarton Oaks, Bach Piano Concerto in D (Soloist:  our guest conductor, Jonathan Yates), and concluded with Beethoven's Sixth Symphony, the famous Pastoral.  Jonathan's lively style and vivid descriptions of each piece made for a memorable night of music.   It just gets better and better at GBS! Come and be part of our musical family next season. Click the tab below to purchase tickets, or the 2016-17 Season tab for more information.   GBS turned 70 on October 11, and we celebrated with style -- a grand gala on April 29:  The Blue Moon Ball  at the Brooklawn Country Club in Fairfield.   5-concert and 3-concert subscriptions now available!   The PERFECT gift idea:  GBS TICKETS!
