South Alabama Concert Choir and Mobile Opera Joins MSO

April 2, 2022 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

The South Alabama Concert Choir and Mobile Opera Chorus join the MSO on April 2 & 3, 2022, for a hidden Beethoven gem, Calm Sea and Prosperous Voyage. “After a long year and a half, the Mobile Symphony is thrilled to finally return to the stage at full force,” MSO Music Director Scott Speck says. “This means so much to us – and every moment will be suffused with extra gratitude for being together again.” Speck describes the season as a return to bigger, bolder music after a year of smaller orchestras on a socially distanced stage: “We’re filling the season with the huge pieces we’ve missed playing – including Tchaikovsky’s spectacular Fourth Symphony, Grieg’s virtuosic Piano Concerto, a barn-burner of a violin concerto by Saint-Saëns, Beethoven’s Eighth, and a whole concert devoted to John Williams,” he explains. “But we’re also going to exciting new places – offering a fanfare by Adolphus Hailstork, an overture by José Mauricio Nunez García and a brilliant new work by Jessie Montgomery.” For the season opening concert (Oct. 2 & 3), seats and rows will be blocked to accommodate social distancing. Masks covering nose and mouth are required. Performances will be approximately one hour without intermission. The MSO will review this policy on a concert-by-concert basis, and updates will be posted on the website: mobilesymphony.org. Six-concert season memberships are $102-$408. Tickets to all individual performances including special events are on sale now for $20-$89. Tickets can be purchased online, by phone at 251-432-2010 or at the symphony box office, 257 Dauphin Street. Student tickets are $10. Through the MSO Big Red Ticket program sponsored by the Alabama Power Foundation, students in grades K-12 can attend any of the season’s six classical Sunday performances free when accompanied by a paying adult (excludes special events Hit-Makers and Joy to the World).
