With great anticipation, the Solano Symphony
Orchestra, under the direction of Maestro Semyon Lohss, looks forward to presenting its
35th season, performing five concerts of the finest symphonic music for full orchestra.
The wide-ranging selection of superb music, which guarantees something for everyone,
includes the stirring music of Beethoven, the lilting Viennese charm of Schubert and
Johann Strauss Jr., the magical music of the holidays, as well as the boisterous verve of
American movie music.
The orchestra’s December and February programs confirm that life is getting back to
normal. Selections from Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker ballet will again fill the hall for the
Holiday Celebration, which also features the sparkling sound of the solo mandolin in a
performance of Hummel’s Mandolin Concerto, performed by Dana Rath. The annual
Salute-to-Youth program welcomes back exceptional student musicians, ready to share
their talent with a live audience after enduring the confines of virtual-reality
In March, featuring the World’s Greatest Classics, the orchestra brings to life one of the
choicest works of the symphonic repertoire, the Symphony No. 2 in C minor by
Tchaikovsky, known as the “Little Russian,” which brims with Russian folk melodies and
musical color. And finally, for those who revel in blasts of popular music bursting from
the stage, May’s Annual Pops Concert presents energetic tunes from Vienna, Spain,
England, and Hollywood: everything from a rhythmic Strauss quadrille to music that
captures the excitement of a James Bond adventure and the zaniness of Looney Tunes
From the Season Opening Concert’s strains of “The Star-Spangled Banner,” to the last
show’s stirring rendition of “The Stars and Stripes Forever,” the Solano Symphony
Orchestra invites you back to hear great music alive in all keys and styles, led by our
inspired conductor and performed by our superb musicians. Check out the details of the
complete season’s performances at the orchestra’s website and enjoy the experience of
the full orchestra’s sound, presented at your doorstep.
