Ward Stare, conductor

The newly formed Macon-Mercer Symphony Orchestra begins its inaugural season with a blockbuster concert featuring the Prokofiev, Symphony No. 1 (Classical Symphony), Beethoven Symphony No. 7, and Otis Redding Foundation students and campers. Prokofiev’s work premiered in 1918 and has become one of his most popular compositions. In composing the Classical Symphony, Prokofiev sought to draw inspiration from Joseph Haydn and other classical composers. Of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7, it has been written that “this symphony is the richest melodically and the most pleasing and comprehensible of all Beethoven symphonies.” Making the evening more memorable will be an appearance of the Otis Redding Foundation students and campers performing their songs, orchestrated by Townsend School of Music faculty member Christopher Schmitz. An opening concert not to be missed!
