The Bozeman Symphony, featuring its own principal flute Sue Makeever and the string section of the orchestra, closes a remarkable season of challenges and triumphs. The array of music from classical to contemporary showcases the talent of leading female composer Jessie Montgomery, the wildly celebrated J.S. Bach, and the genius of a young Felix Mendelssohn.
Opening this program is acclaimed New York-based composer, violinist and educator Jessie Montgomery’s contemporary work Strum, a piece that the Washington Post described as “ wildly colorful and exploding with life.” Principal flute Sue Makeever follows with her interpretation of J.S. Bach’s Orchestral Suite No. 2, playing seven movements building to an epic finale with one of Bach’s greatest orchestra works. The concert finishes with Felix Mendelssohn’s Sinfonia No. 7, one of twelve string symphonies he wrote between 1821-1822. He was only 13 years old at the completion of this work.
The concert will livestream to the Bozeman Symphony’s website, YouTube and Facebook pages.
