Above: Symphony Pro Musica is returning to St. Mark’s school for another performance. This time, they’re bringing featured flutist Carlos Aguilar, billed as a “rock star”. He certainly looks the part! (contributed photo and images cropped from Facebook)

This weekend, Symphony Pro Musica is holding two performances of its 2nd concert of its 36th season. Once again, one of the performances will be held in Southborough at St. Mark’s School.*

The concert is titled “Knights and Wizardry”. It will feature a special solo by “rock star” Carlos Aguilar: 

The evocative flute soloist Aguilar performs the brilliant and emotional Khachaturian Flute Concerto.

But it’s not just about the guest performer. The entire symphony, led by Music Director Mark Churchill, will perform works by Wagner. It looks like one of those is the inspiration for the concert title:

Symphony Pro Musica also performs Parsifal—An Orchestral Quest, by Wagner/Henk de Vlieger. Parsifal is considered Wagner’s crowning achievement, based on the story of the Knights of the Holy Grail. Wagner’s The Flying Dutchman Overture rounds out the program.

The in town performance is this Sunday, January 20th at 3:30 pm in the school’s Putnam Family Arts Center. (Click here for the campus map.)
