Why You'll Love This Concert

Our evening begins with the rarely-performed overture for his only opera, Genoveva, praised by The New York Times as “a tapestry of impassioned romantic melody.” The excitement continues as we showcase the talented winner of the University of Redlands’ annual concerto competition.

Saturday evening’s concert was as good as any I have attended the Redlands Symphony in the 17 years I have purchased season tickets.
Anne-Marie McDermott’s performance was absolutely amazing, and it was a rare privilege to be in the audience to hear her perform. The orchestra rose to the occasion, as they have for every concert Maestro Wilson has conducted.
We are so fortunate to have this wonderful director, orchestra, and guest musicians play for us.
