The Fargo-Moorhead Symphony is back with another season – and this time it’s reimagined! Let’s talk about what to expect…
We heard from opera singer Adrienne Danrich about her plan for this performance, singing several songs that are particularly appropriate in these turbulent times of social unrest.
Two songs will feature Music Director Christopher Zimmerman on the piano, and the final one will feature a small combo. In addition, of course, she will be the soprano soloist in Mahler’s Symphony No. 4.
Coming to audiences this weekend from the Festival Concert Hall at NDSU Performing Arts, the concerts will be reimagined with chamber orchestra configurations of between 15 and no more than 35 musicians on stage.
BUT, there will be no live audience. This time the program will be recorded, and season ticket holders will be given a private viewing of the streamed concert on Saturday evening, September 26. The public is invited to view the concert at 2:00 pm on Sunday, September 27. Please note: there will be no live, in-person concerts at the normal Saturday evening and Sunday afternoon times.
Expect music from Mahler, who’s symphonic music is known for its energy, vivid orchestration, and sometimes overwhelming sound, usually produced by large orchestras.
This weekend will feature the return of soprano Adrienne Danrich to the Fargo area. She appeared in February 2019 in the cabaret-style program Love and Trouble at the Fargo Theatre. Ms. Danrich also sang the soprano part in an FMSO performance of Mahler’s Symphony No. 2 in April 2015.
