The Sunday “Melody and Mastery” concert is at 3:30 pm in the school’s Putnam Family Arts Center.

All area students are invited to attend for free. Adults and seniors can attend at $25/$20 per ticket. (Although “First time Symphony Pro Musica patrons” can attend for free.) Click here to purchase tickets.

The ticket site promotes:

Our season opens with three masterworks of the symphonic repertoire, in a classic program of overture, concerto, and symphony. Russian composer Balakirev’s rousing and songful Overture on Three Russian Folk Songs starts off the festivities, followed by Beethoven’s monumental Third Piano Concerto, performed by 17-year-old prodigy pianist Andrew Li in his second SPM appearance. Brahms’ Fourth Symphony is considered by many to be the master’s finest work–poignant, noble, dramatic, meditative, powerful–and the SPM players will inspire you as much as they themselves are inspired by this striking creation.

There will be a pre-concert talk 45 minutes prior to the concert.

Sunday will be the second performance of the season. If you can’t make that afternoon, you can head to Hudson High on Saturday evening for the first concert. For more details on the events, read the flyer (above right) or the full press release here.
