November 15, 2012 by SoWal Staff
Sinfonia’s seventh year of innovative musical programming reaffims the organizations commitment to excellence for the 2012-2013 schedule.
Maintaining the tradition of “symphony redefined,” the non-profit symphony has scheduled a stellar line up of concerts with world-renowned guest artists. Dubbed “007 Years of Symphony Redefined,” the season culminates in an orchestral tour de force of the original soundtracks from all of the “James Bond” films in “Bond & Beyond: Celebrating 50 years of James Bond.”
The main season begins with a “Broadway Holiday” in the annual holiday concert on Friday, December 14 at Destiny Worship Center. Tony Award-nominated Broadway superstar Gary Mauer (currently the Phantom in “Phantom of the Opera”) and vocal sensation Morgan James (“Godspell,” “The Addams Family,” and “Motown the Musical,”) join the orchestra for an orchestral tour through everyone’s favorite holiday melodies and the beloved Broadway tunes that made them famous.
Grammy Award-nominee Caroline Goulding returns to the Sinfonia stage on January 25, 2013 to perform Sibelius’ epic violin concerto. “ Technically brilliant young violinists grow on trees these days, but few have so strong a personality so early,” claimed the Dallas Morning News. The concert, at Destiny Worship Center, concludes with Beethoven’s rhythmically whimsical and inspiring seventh symphony. The Amernet String Quartet will be in residence February 15 &16 at the Rosemary Beach Town Hall, performing several concerts and educational activities.
On Saturday, March 23, 2013, the Emerald Coast Convention Center becomes the backdrop as the world’s favorite spy assists in bringing the main season to an explosive close. Sinfonia’s annual gala event: “Bond & Beyond: Celebrating 50 years of James Bond,” will include the orchestra, guest conductor Michael Krajewski and Tony Award-winning actress and singer Debbie Gravitte in an orchestral tribute to 007.
