Why You'll Love This Concert

The coronation march of an unlikely king who overcame his speech impediment to lead his country through its darkest hour… A composer banned by the Nazis when he portrayed a painter’s struggle for freedom…

Our first concert celebrates people who overcame enormous obstacles and violent opposition to fight for their beliefs.

It came as a great shock to Hindemith when the Nazis came to power. In seeking to decide how he could best use his prominent position to protest the beliefs and ideals he saw being inflicted on his native land, he realized that the 16th-century German Peasants’ War provided the perfect metaphor for his own situation.

Unlike most concerti, this is not a piece wherein the orchestra serves as mere backdrop for a stunning display of virtuosic fireworks by a star leading the way. Rather, the violinist and orchestra are a team, collaborating and interacting to recount an elegant and nuanced musical drama.

Redlands Symphony Orchestra opens sea...

10/14/13 • by Betty Tyler • The Redlands Daily Facts

Kosakovskaya’s rich tone and fluid, musical playing made Memorial Chapel a better place to be Saturday night, and the orchestra played up a Brahmsian storm to match.


Attended the concert last Saturday evening and it was an amazing performance. Dr. Wilson as always got the absolute best from the orchestra, I am so impressed with the orchestra members and how they respond to Dr. Wilson’s direction. The soloist was stunning. So glad to be there and will see you at the next concert!
