The opening concert of the 2022-23 season of The Symphony of The Hills celebrates the spirit of Rome, Italy, and all the history and accomplishments of its citizens and guests. The saying, “when in Rome, do as Romans do” captures the thrill and risk of learning and adopting new customs when in unfamiliar territory.
Mendelssohn – Symphony No. 4 in A Major, Op. 90: "Italian"
Respighi – Pines of Rome
Gershwin/Balentine – Suite from Porgy & Bess for violin and orchestra
Nicole Cherry, violin soloist
