Description

Thomas Heuser, the second of four candidates slated for consideration as the Wyoming Symphony Orchestra’s new music director and conductor, will join the WSO on stage Saturday, Dec. 1st at 7:30pm. His program “Love of Nature” features Dvorak’s Symphony No. 9 in E Minor, From the New World and Smetana’s Die Moldau.

Heuser and the orchestra will be joined by Tim Fain, a prominent American violinist. Fain has displayed his talents on the big screen, working on films like Black Swan and 12 Years a Slave. Fain is also known for RESONANCE — a virtual reality music and film collaboration with Google. Fain will display his virtuosity with Sibelius’s Violin Concerto.

At 5:00 p.m. the evening of the concert, Heuser will hold a pre-concert talk at The Lyric, where he will speak about the program in terms of musicality, history, theme and more. The talk will last 30 minutes which gives patrons plenty of time to dine downtown before the doors open at NCHS’s John F. Welsh Auditorium at 7:00 p.m. The post-concert reception at Art 321 will be another opportunity for patrons to interact with the music director candidate.

After the concert, the WSO will distribute a survey to patrons and musicians via our email newsletter to gather feedback about the concert and the candidate. Audience feedback will be instrumental in the search committee’s recommendation, so the staff and board urge all patrons to participate. If you would like to receive the survey, please sign up for the WSO’s email newsletter by texting MAESTRO to 66866.

Tickets are available by phone at (307) 266-1478 and in the WSO office, which is temporarily located at 159 N. Wolcott, Suite 180 in the Ohio Oil Building. The WSO offers a range of ticketing options, including entry to the 10:30 a.m. dress rehearsal on Dec. 1st in exchange for a non-perishable food item. Food donations will go to the Wyoming Food for Thought project. To learn more visit our website www.wyomingsymphony.org or call the WSO office.
