Posted on: December 19, 2013

“The Hawaii Symphony Orchestra announced on Tuesday a spring series of nine performances between March 16 and June 1,” according an unsigned article in Wednesday’s (12/18) Pacific Business News (Honolulu). “The series will be heavy on matinees, with six Sunday afternoon concerts and three Saturday evening performances. Jonathan Parrish, a horn player and the HSO’s new executive director, said ticket sales for the fall series ‘exceeded our projections. We plan to build on this success by bringing a breathtaking array of musical talent to perform with us this spring,’ he said in a statement. The series will lead off at 4 p.m. Sunday, March 16, with an all-Beethoven concert featuring guest conductor Gunther Herbig. It will be followed by two concerts featuring Prokofiev and Strauss, at 8 p.m. Saturday, April 5, and 4 p.m. Sunday, April 6. Concerts featuring Gershwin and Beethoven are scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, April 26-27, followed by a solo concert on Sunday, May 11, featuring Hawaii violinist Ignace Jang. Other performances are scheduled for May 17-18 and June 1.” The Hawaii Symphony is the successor to the Honolulu Symphony, which filed for bankruptcy and played its final concert in December 2009.
