Dear Patrons, Friends, and Members of the Sheboygan Symphony Family,
As my seventh season with the Sheboygan Symphony Orchestra family approaches, the orchestral and choral communications are ever-deepening. There is great anticipation in that.
Our Sheboygan Symphony Chorus will celebrate 23 years of providing great choral/orchestral repertoire with the ever popular oratorio Messiah, contributing some movie music, as well as offering a second installment of some of the most famous, popular, and powerfully moving opera music.
Our season opening event is a traditional program, with music of Beethoven and Tchaikovsky, featuring hornist Ronald Beitel in the First horn concerto of Richard Strauss.
The November “People’s Choice” concert is unique, and you will get to hear and see how the voting from last season turned out.
Other featured guest artists for the season include soprano Laquita Mitchell, and singer/songwriter David Weber in world premiere orchestrations by Tony Memmel. This is rounded out with soloists from members of both the Sheboygan Symphony Orchestra and Chorus.
The season is filled with traditional music including Mozart, Prokofiev, Puccini, Wagner and more. To the other side there will be contemporary Christian music, excerpts from Pirates of the Caribbean, Star Trek, The Wizard of Oz, and Themes from James Bond 007. Plan for a few surprise encores along the way too.
As we continue nearing our 100th Anniversary, the mission is being met.
Dr. Kevin McMahon
Music Director and Conductor
