2012-2013 Toledo Symphony Season
This is an exciting year for the symphony, TSO subscribers and the northwest Ohio region. Over the past year, the Toledo Symphony has cultivated exciting partnerships with the Toledo Museum of Art, the City of Toledo and Regional Growth Partnership, and the University of Toledo. Next year continues this spirit of collaboration.
Audiences will be invited to explore the ways that “Music Captures Your Imagination.” The TSO explores the fun and visual side of classical music by working with the Cirque du Symphonie on the Pops Series and brings back Cornel Gabara (of the Glacity Theatre Collective and University of Toledo) to direct a fully staged version of Stravinsky’s Soldier’s Tale on the Classics Series.
A fantastic line-up of guest artists will energize and challenge the group’s resident musicians. Guitar phenom Xuefei Yang performs Rodrigo’s haunting Concierto di Aranjuez on the classics in April, and newly appointed conductor of the New Jersey Symphony, Jacques Lacombe, brings Beethoven’s Pastoral Symphony in March. James Meena leads perennial favorite Carmina Burana, and the beginning and end of the season features an All-Rachmaninoff concert and Strauss’s mammoth Alpine Symphony respectively.
The Symphony’s Key Bank Pops Series continues to come into its own. The TSO performs with the United States Army Soldier’s Chorus for a patriotic program in November. Superstars Gary Puckett and Jim Brickman will grace the stage of the Stranahan as well.
Audiences in Sylvania can look forward to a touch of humor on the Healthcare REIT Mozart and More Series finale, and chamber music lovers can look forward to strong performances of seriously challenging works on the Blade Chamber Series.
The Family series once again features new arts and culture partners, adding educational value. 2012-2013 partners include the Toledo School for the Arts, Toledo Opera, Toledo Ballet and the Toledo Botanical Gardens.
The Toledo Symphony
With roots as early as 1838, the Symphony sees itself as the musical heart of Northwest Ohio, supporting Neighborhood and Regional Concerts, a School of Music and three youth orchestras in addition to traditional concert offerings (Classics, Pops, Family, Mozart & More and Chamber).
