Tickets for Bozeman Symphony’s holiday performances of Gloria on sale now
Heading into the holidays, Bozeman Symphony continues its unique and diverse 52nd concert season of new and classic symphonic repertoire with upcoming performances that will surely delight the community.
Antonio Vivaldi’s Gloria presents music fit for the season including the magical scenes incorporated from the music of Gioacchino Rossini and later transformed into “La boutique fantasque” (The Fantastic Toy Shop) by Ottorino Respighi. Christmastime is always magical and no matter who you are, it is impossible not to get caught up in the spirit of the time as the performance conclude with Handel’s Hallelujah Chorus.
The festive concerts will feature special guests Elizabeth Croy (soprano) and Melina Pyron (mezzo-soprano) alongside the Symphonic Choir. Bozeman Symphony welcomes Music Director finalist Norman Huynh to conduct this weekend. Performances will take place on Saturday, December 14th, at 7:30pm, and Sunday, December 15th, at 2:30pm, both at the Willson Auditorium.
Music Director finalists will participate in the season’s programming as they present a “conductor’s choice” highlighted at each concert series performance held at the Willson. Huynh has selected “Among Mountains,” a commissioned and premiered work by the Oregon Symphony in 2016, by Chris Rogerson and “Men of Goodwill” by Benjamin Britten as his conductor’s choice. Rogerson will join Huynh and Bozeman Symphony for the Gloria performances. Described by The New York Times as a confident new composer, Rogerson’s work has been performed by orchestras across the United States, including the San Francisco, Atlanta, Houston and Kansas City symphonies.
Norman Huynh has established himself as a conductor with an ability to captivate an audience through a multitude of musical genres. This season, Huynh continues to showcase his versatility in concerts featuring Itzhak Perlman, hip-hop artists Nas and Wyclef Jean, and vocal superstar Storm Large. He is currently the Harold and Arlene Schnitzer Associate Conductor of the Oregon Symphony and maintains an international guest conducting schedule. Upcoming and recent engagements include the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra, Detroit Symphony, Rochester Philharmonic, Orchestra Sinfònica del Vallès, Eugene Symphony, Grant Park Music Festival and the Princess Galyani Vadhana Youth Orchestra of Bangkok. He has served as a cover conductor for the New York Philharmonic and Los Angeles Philharmonic with John Williams.
