GORDON HUNT LEADS REDLANDS SYMPHONY IN AN EVENING OF GREAT CLASSICS ON MARCH 12

The third candidate auditioning to succeed Jon Robertson as the Orchestra’s Music Director Will Conduct Works by Brahms, Mozart, and Mendelssohn

Redlands, CA -- On March 12, concertgoers will have the opportunity to meet the third of the three finalists to succeed Jon Robertson as Conductor of the Redlands Symphony when Gordon Hunt takes the podium to lead the orchestra in a program featuring works by Brahms, Mozart, and Mendelssohn.

This season, the Redlands Symphony has featured three guest conductors who are the finalists in a worldwide search for Jon Robertson’s successor. At each of these concerts, the audience is invited to express their opinion regarding the candidate so that these comments may be considered by the Search Committee as it makes its final recommendation.

Each of the candidates has selected a program of works he feels best demonstrates his personality, skill, and musical taste. Maestro Hunt has chosen to conduct Felix Mendelssohn’s Ruy Blas Overture, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Symphony No. 33, and Johannes Brahms’ Symphony No. 2.

“This is a lovely program of works by some of the great masters,” says Mr. Hunt. “The light touch of Mendelssohn, the peerless genius of Mozart, and culminating with the moving and wonderful second symphony of Brahms… I am sure that everyone will find something in this program to motivate and inspire them.”

Well-known as the principal oboist of the Philharmonia and London Chamber Orchestras, Gordon Hunt has an active conducting career in addition to a busy international schedule as a soloist. As a conductor, he has been Music Director of the Swedish Chamber Winds, Artistic Director of the Danish Chamber Players, and has conducted the National Symphony of South Africa, the Swedish Chamber Orchestra, the Johannesburg Philharmonic, and other orchestras around the world.

Tickets start at $15 and are available for purchase online at www.redlandssymphony.com or by calling (909) 748-8018. The Redlands Symphony is an independent non-profit organization which has been bringing the best of classical music to our community for 66 years.
