The Riverside Symphony, based in New York City, has announced details of its 2010-11 season, the thirtieth for the orchestra. Founding Music Director George Rothman will lead three programs at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall, the first of which will take place on November 6 and feature Sibelius’s Symphony No. 7, Schumann’s Genoveva Overture, George Tsontakis’s Laconika (New York premiere), and Hindemith’s Cello Concerto, with soloist Amit Pelad. Concerts in February and June will include Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 3, Robert Suter’s Lyric Suite (U.S. premiere), Prokofiev’s Summer Day, and the world premiere of Goldkind by Riverside Symphony Artistic Director Anthony Korf. The latter work will feature narration and vocals by pop singer Sabina Sciubba, who co-wrote Goldkind’s fairytale story with Korf and will be joined in the concert by Jesse Murphy, Didi Gutman, and Aaron Johnston, members of her Brazilian Girls band.
