Audience to help symphony choose director

The Sheboygan Symphony Orchestra will continue its 103rd concert season on Saturday, November 13 at 7:30 p.m. at the Stefanie H. Weill Center for the Performing Arts.

This second concert of the SSO’s 103rd season features conductor Isaac Selya, the second of four finalists for the next SSO Music Director.

“This program explores questions of meaning. Is music only a series of pleasant sounds, or does it have the ability to convey deeper meaning? What can music tell us about our own lives and the lives of musicians of the past? The program includes works by Mendelssohn and Richard Strauss that attempt to use music to tell vivid stories, and Brahms’ final symphony: is it an austere masterpiece of formal structures and harmonies, or does it have a deeper message?” says Selya.

All audience members will have the opportunity to provide feedback on Selya and the other conductors after each concert to help the SSO make its final decision in May.
