2018-2019 Season

Join Lexington Symphony for a thrilling new season!


Music From the Movies
May 4, 2019 | Saturday, 7:30PM

John Williams has fundamentally changed the way we experience movies. His film scores perfectly capture the emotions and story telling we see on screen, becoming as indelible in our memory as the film itself. Whether it’s victorious heroes, tearful heartbreak, other-worldly aliens, or magical wizardry, Williams’ unforgettable music has created some of film’s most iconic moments. Experience it all this evening, with some of Williams’ most familiar scores, a few seldom heard masterpieces, and music from composers who inspired him. May the 4th be with you!

In Greek mythology, Apollo led the nine muses, who presided over the arts and sciences. Likewise, this program brings together a wide variety of styles that ignited the creative spark in choreographers such as George Balanchine and Jerome Robbins. All of these works have a musical and visual narrative that is compelling and evocative.

Pre-Concert Conductor Talk at 6:30pm

Prokofiev | The Prodigal Son
Mendelssohn | Violin Concerto, Op. 64
- Hana Chang, Violin
Franck | Symphony in D minor

This concert features three works that take a fresh look at the music of their time. The Prodigal Son was the creative spark of a collaboration that would last for years to come and would forge new paths for Prokofiev and ballet choreographer George Balanchine. César Franck’s Symphony in D minor combines musical styles never heard before, with luxurious, deeply emotional melodies. Hana Chang, our featured young violinist from Lexington is a rising star, winning accolades internationally.
