About the Performance

Whether you dress up or dress down, join us for this annual celebration of Beethoven, anchored by the composer’s First Symphony. We will also explore the pairing of music with poetry and verse in a program curated in partnership with Northwest Florida’s former Poet Laureate. Poets Jamey Jones and Charles McCaskill will read their poems aloud as the orchestra performs musical selections from George Walker and Tobias Picker. Soprano Halley Gilbert will perform Knoxville: Summer of 1915 with prose by James Agee set to the music of Samuel Barber. Selections from Leonard Bernstein’s evocative On the Waterfront complement the program.

Join us for a working dress rehearsal of the Beethoven & Blue Jeans program. Tickets are $5 and may be purchased at the door, by phone, or in person.
