The concert was fun, delightful, and just everything that a music enthusiast could clap for. It was an evening that I won't forget and my favorite concert ever! Be careful, I'd like to hug everyone!

From Darkness into Light
Saturday, February 28, 2015, 7 p.m.
Cambridge High School

Spring is right around the corner. Let us bring you on a journey from darkness into light with music. We start with Richard Strauss‘s Death and Transfiguration, which depicts the thoughts of a dying artist from his childhood innocence, through struggles of manhood, to his final resting place in heaven. And we celebrate the light with Mussorgsky‘s Introduction to Khovanshchina and Rimsky-Korsakov‘s beautiful and lush Russian Easter Festival.

This concert is made possible through the generous support of Numerex Corp.

Aaron Copland's Appalachian Spring is an exceptional work of American music which paints a picture of the expansive West. Listen to a portion of our performance of Aaron Copland's Appalachian Spring.

Having visited Paris in the 1920s, George Gershwin decided to capture the bustle of the city in his 1928 piece, An American in Paris. Listen to the Georgia Philharmonic's rendition of this classic work, complete with tuned taxi horns.
