The Wyoming Symphony Orchestra

The Wyoming Symphony Orchestra’s 69th season celebrates Aspects of Love, with the January 19 performance entitled, Dedication. Music has been used as a dedication of love, gratitude, and friendship. The Adagietto from Gustav Mahler’s fifth symphony was written as a musical love letter to his wife Alma. Grateful for the help of Dr. Nikolai Dahl to overcome a severe depression, Rachmaninoff dedicated his second piano concerto to him as a token of gratitude. Pianist Steven Lin, prizewinner at the Arthur Rubinstein Piano Competition, will take the audience through the work’s dazzling technical fireworks and gorgeous lush melodies. Elgar’s collection of musical portraits from the Enigma Variations ends the evening’s performance.

The opening performance of the Wyoming Symphony Orchestra is directed by Music Director Candidate, Christopher Dragon. For more information about the evening to the symphony, please call (307) 266-1478 or visit www.wyomingsymphony.org.
