Great concert in Mason
It was an absolute pleasure to play Camille Saint-Saens’s Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso with Mason Symphony Orchestra under the direction of maestro Suren Petrosyan. This community orchestra has grown so much since the time I first heard them playing about 2 years ago. I enjoyed rehearsals with these guys, they are incredibly friendly and love music sincerely.
Besides Saint-Saens, the program of the concert at St James Catholic Church included N. Rimsky-Korsakov’s Capriccio Espagnol and R. Schumann’s Symphony No 2. Maestro Petrosyan demonstrated the high level musicianship in his interpretations and orchestra was following him with the complete trust and understanding.
Overall, it was a great show and a lot of fun both for musicians and the audience! Below are some pictures taken during and after the concert:
