Delta David Gier, conductor


Montgomery / Banner

Hailstork / Symphony No. 3

One of the most famous symphonies of all time, Beethoven's 5th opens the season.  Jessie Montgomery's "Banner," a rhapsody of the Star Spangled Banner and Adolphus Hailstork's engaging Symphony No. 3 are on the first half of this dynamic program.

“It will be generally admitted that Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony is the most sublime noise that has ever penetrated into the ear of man.” – EM Forster (author of Howard’s End, A Room with a View, and Passage to India)
