“I’m bursting with pride for our own Mobile Symphony musicians, and thrilled when we’re able to feature them in solo works with the orchestra. In this concert Mollie Pate, our virtuoso Principal Horn, performs the concerto written by an 18-year-old Richard Strauss for his father. And for the very first time, the Mobile Symphony plays Brahms’s Symphony no. 3 — my favorite of them all.” – Scott Speck, Music Director
The Mobile Symphony celebrates exceptional classical hits and exciting local talent with Bravura! Opening with Tchaikovsky’s lush Serenade for Strings, this concert is filled with awe-inspiring pieces showcasing the orchestra’s talent and brilliance! The program features MSO’s own principal horn, Mollie Pate, in Richard Strauss’ first horn concerto. The concert ends with Brahms’ Symphony No. 3.
