To kick off its 2023-24 season at the Garde Arts Center, the Eastern Connecticut Symphony Orchestra will present a festive program of short works in several styles, including Dixieland selections with the Tom Brown 6. Wear blue to join us in celebrating Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue which was composed 100 years ago!
Area veterans are encouraged to attend. To honor them, the ECSO will play a medley of the official songs of the six services of the U.S. Armed Forces: Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, and Space Force.
The guest artist at the ECSO’s November 18 concert will be Hyung Joon Won, a South Korean-born, Juilliard School-trained violinist, who will perform Antonín Dvořák’s impassioned Violin Concerto in A Minor, composed in 1879.
For the past several years, the ECSO has presented Young People’s Concerts (YPCs) at the Garde Arts Center in addition to Music in the Schools and a new Music Therapy pilot program.
