Annapolis Symphony’s strings-focused virtual concert to feature Pierné, Price, Shostakovich, Suk

Posted on: March 17, 2021

Maryland’s Annapolis Symphony Orchestra will perform its fourth virtual Masterworks concert of the season on March 20 from Maryland Hall, led by Music Director José-Luis Novo. Repertoire will include two string serenades, Gabriel Pierné’s Serenade, Op. 7 and Josef Suk’s Serenade for Strings in E-flat Major, Op. 6; Florence Price’s Andante moderato for strings; and Dmitri Shostakovich’s Chamber Symphony, Op. 110a. “We wanted to give the spring equinox a pivotal significance at this point in our lives,” said Novo. “Our program echoes both the reflective and the hopeful moods in which we will likely find ourselves at this stage of the season and the pandemic as we look forward to an imminently brighter future.” The orchestra is selling individual tickets for the streamed concert, as well as passes for the entire season, a pre-concert discussion with Dr. Rachel Franklin, and additional video content.
