Don’t miss the last concert of the year by the Stetson Symphony Orchestra. Conductor Anthony Hose begins the program with Rossini’s thrilling overture, The Thieving Magpie, which has proved a favorite with audiences for nearly two centuries. It is followed by Dvořák’s great Symphony No. 7 in D Minor, a composition which showcases the extraordinary dramatic talent of this great late romantic composer. George Gershwin’s American in Paris concludes the program and is a chance for saxophones and the percussion section, including taxi horns, to join the orchestra in one of the greatest compositions of the 20th century.
