Champagne and Symphony
By Mona Shah
Celebrating its opening night, the Fremont Symphony will offer concert-goers a rare treat along with fabulous music, a champagne and chocolate reception prior to the show. This year's season debuts with the "Classical Top 40" featuring Mozart, Debussy and Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto.
The artistic level of Fremont Symphony Orchestra musicians is at an all-time high and the orchestra enjoys growing recognition as one of the leading regional ensembles of the Bay Area. Greater Tri-City residents are fortunate to have this world class venue in our own backyard. Seasoned concertgoers as well as first-timers can enjoy classical music at its best; much of this music is familiar through everyday usage.
Three all-time favorites will be featured in this performance: Mozart's infectious Overture to The Marriage of Figaro starts the season with ?lan and Debussy's awesome La Mer returns to Fremont for the first time in twenty years. Tchaikovsky's melodious Violin Concerto introduces brilliant young violinist David Southorn, winner of the Symphony's 2007 Young Artist Competition. The concert will also feature a world premiere of a new work for erhu (Chinese violin) and symphony orchestra by composer Albert Chang, with renowned soloist Hong Wang from Fremont's acclaimed ensemble Melody of China.
