Now in its Eleventh year, Kingsville Symphony Orchestra themed this season as “Classics Revisited” featuring works of music that are considered to be standards, or rather, classics in their respective genres. Season 11 opens in October with Leonard Bernstein’s exciting Candide Overture, followed by Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 23 in A Major, K. 488 which will be performed by Texas A&M University-Kingsville faculty member, Dr. Joachim Reinhuber. This Season Opener will conclude with one of the most popular of all symphonies, Dvorak’s Symphony No. 9 in E minor “New World”, Op. 95. The classics will continue with our annual King Ranch Family Holiday Extravaganza under the direction of Guest Conductor, Lee Gwozdz. Our Spring Welcome concert will open with one of the most famous orchestral overtures, the energizing Russlan and Ludmilla Overture by Glinka, followed by a staple in the violin repertoire, the Saint-Saens Violin Concerto No. 3 in B minor performed by 16 year old violinist, Miss Fiona Shea of the Coburn Academy in Los Angeles. The Spring Welcome concert will close with a piece that brought English orchestral music to the international stage, Elgar’s Enigma Variations. KSO has the good fortune to have the support of Texas A&M University-Kingsville, the King Ranch Family Trust, the Robert J. Kleberg Jr. and Helen C. Kleberg Foundation, the B.C. and Addie Brookshire Foundation, HEB Grocery, the Coastal Bend Community Foundation and the people of Kingsville and surrounding areas. With the help and support of our patrons the Kingsville Symphony Orchestra is able to present a high level orchestral experience unmatched in cities of similar size.
