Shacklett concert preview: 6:30 pm
Aquinas Hall, Mount Saint Mary College, Newburgh, NY

Maiello: Shelter – World Premiere
Wagner: Siegfried Idyll
Smetana: Vltava
Elgar Enigma Variations

This title is a line from a famous Australian poem and encapsulates the through-thread of this program. Starting with a world-premiere by an Italian-German composer who sojourned in Newburgh last year, the first work of our new season is dedicated to our very own GNSO. Following this is the very tender Siegfried Idyll by Wagner, written for his wife’s birthday, Smetana’s Vltava, his magisterial ode to the Charles River in his beloved homeland, and finally, Elgar’s portraits of his closest friends and family in the Enigma Variations.

Youth and students with college ID are admitted free of charge to our Open Seating area only. Please note children under 5 are not permitted in our balcony seats.
