Why You'll Love This Concert
Our first guest conductor this season is Ransom Wilson. Maestro Wilson has an international reputation both as a flutist and a conductor, with countless performances and over a dozen recordings (including two Grammy Award nominations). Ransom has chosen an energetic concert of music from opera and ballet that we hope captures your imagination.
This season, we are presenting three candidates to succeed Jon Robertson as Music Director & Conductor of the Redlands Symphony. Each of these finalists has been invited to guest conduct a concert and has selected repertoire that he feels best demonstrates his personality, skill, and musical taste. Patrons attending these concerts will be given the opportunity to express their opinion regarding the candidate, and these comments will be taken under consideration by the Search Committee when it makes its final recommendation.
For more information about each candidate and the selection process, please visit RedlandsSymphony.com/conductor.

The “Dance of the Hours” was intended to depict neither dancing hippos nor desperate letters from summer camp. Good luck listening to this piece without letting your mind wander to either of those images, though.Read More

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.
