Saturday, October 8, 2022
City of Monroe Dowd Center Theatre

Ludwig van Beethoven, Egmont Overture
Ruth Gipps, Song For Orchestra
Alexander Arutunian, Trumpet Concerto
Franz Schubert, Unfinished Symphony


Explore one of the greatest mysteries in musical history — that of Franz Schubert’s first romantic symphony and one of his greatest works — that was never completed. Perhaps it was the specter of the great Beethoven, whose heroic Egmont Overture overlooks the opening of this concert or Schubert’s own failing health that drove the angst-ridden unfinished oeuvre. Perhaps the secret is hidden in the music itself. Also find on this concert a romantic reprieve in Ruth Gipps’ Song for Orchestra and the dazzling Arutunian Trumpet Concerto performed by USO’s very own Craig Retzlaff.
