Announcing our 2014-2015 Season: Reach for the Stars

We have unveiled details for the BSA’s 72nd season. Led by music director Alan Futterman, the BSA is setting high goals with a stellar six concert series for their 2014-2015 season. With the season theme Reach for the Stars, the BSA, including the Bremerton Symphony Orchestra, Concert Chorale and Youth Orchestra, are ready to shine.

Season highlights:

  • A colorful Russian evening is planned for the season premiere October 18th, with pianist Debra Florian performing Rachmaninov’s Second Piano Concerto.
  • The November concert traces the best of American music from its roots in Colonial-era Shape-Note songs, through the 19th Century Boston symphonist John Knowles Paine, to the 20th Century hits of Aaron Copland, Leonard Bernstein and Duke Ellington, with an entertaining touch of Herrmann and Cage and finally a new work by local Charles Berry.
  • The Messiah and Tchaikovsky, in December, features all the great choruses of Handel’s Messiah and Anastasia Solomatina performing Tchaikovsky’s dazzling First Piano Concerto.
  •  The Bremerton Symphony Youth Orchestra will join the Bremerton Symphony Orchestra onstage in March and will encourage all to Reach for the Stars. True to the concert’s title, the program will include The Planets by Gustav Holst and the celestial Death and Transfiguration of Richard Strauss.
  • Berlioz and Bruckner continues an April tradition in the Our Lady Star of the Sea church with the Kitsap County premiere of Anton Bruckner’s 4th Symphony, The Romantic.  The evening will also feature the blazing brasses of Berlioz and our resident mezzo-soprano soloist, Chorale Director LeeAnne Campos.
  • The season finale will feature Beethoven’s triumphant Ninth Symphony for chorus, soloists and orchestra.

Season and individual concert tickets are now on sale. Season tickets for all six concerts are $139 for adult, $118 for senior and military, and $36 for youth and student. Individual concert tickets are $26 for adult, $22 for senior and military, and $8 for youth and student.  Contact the Bremerton Symphony Association office at (360) 373-1722 to purchase tickets.
