The South Shore Orchestra (SSO) will perform the music of Beethoven and Hovhaness for its Opening Night Gala concert on Friday, June 5, 2015. Beethoven! officially opens the SSO’s 2015 concert season at the Memorial Opera House. The program will feature Beethoven’s awe-inspiring Symphony No. 5 in C Minor and his rustic Symphony No. 6 in F Major, “Pastoral”, as well as one of Alan Hovhaness’ earliest known orchestral works, Storm on Mt. Wildcat. Powerful and complex, the emotionally charged music of Beethoven and Hovhaness offers listeners the chance to reflect upon expressions of fate, heroics and nature.
