In Friday’s (8/27) San Bernardino County Sun (California), Michel Nolan writes, “Last spring, Maestro Jon Robertson, music director and conductor of the Redlands Symphony, announced the symphony’s 2010-2011 season, promising ‘something for everyone.’ He wasn’t kidding.  In what he calls ‘a blockbuster season that will both entertain and inspire our audience,’ the symphony’s 60th season offers a broad spectrum of stunning performances between Oct. 9 and May 21, 2011. … The symphony pays special tribute Jan. 29, 2011, to its longtime concertmaster, violinist Pavel Farkas, who will be the featured soloist playing Beethoven’s Violin Concerto. The all-Beethoven program also includes Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7. The work of a new artist selected as the winner of the University of Redlands annual Concerto Competition will be featured in the March 12 performance, as well as popular musical scores from some of Hollywood’s most successful movies. … Culminating the season on May 21 are Mahler’s Symphony No. 2 – The Resurrection, with soloists Angel Blue and Rebecca Robinson. The concert will also feature the combined choruses of The Community Chorus of Redlands and Ensemble XXI, the Redlands University Madrigals, and the Redlands University Chapel Singers.”
