On Saturday, October 8, the Symphony will bring Maestro Jose-Lius Novo and Grammy Award winning cellist Sara Saint' Ambrogio to the Performing Arts Center. The program begins with Jubillee from Symphonic Sketches by G. W. Chadwick. Jubilee is the first of four movements inspired by a scene description, much like snapshots in an album, drawings or vignettes. Maestro Novo collaborates with Sant' Ambrogio on Elgar's Cello Concerto, a contemplative piece written after World War I. The evening's finale is J. Sibelius' Symphony No. 2 in D Major, Op. 43, a full melodic piece and the composer's best-known work that premiered in 1902.

This course will be in two parts. In the morning, there will be a lecture about the composers, about the pieces that are to be played in the rehearsal, and about the soloists. In the afternoon, the class, as a group, attends the dress rehearsal of the performance. At the dress rehearsal SLO Symphony guest conductor Mr.Novo will speak as he conducts, giving background information, musicology, and notes on harmony. With his broad knowledge and stage presence, the dress rehearsal should be fairly comprehensive.
