PREVIEW: Springfield Symphony Orchestra, Of Heroes and Poets

Symphony Hall, Springfield, MA
Friday, April 22, 2022

The Springfield Symphony brings heroic and poetic music to life through the voices of three of music’s most interesting characters.
William Grant Still
The prolific and under-appreciated American composer William Grant Still was inspired by the evocative and rhythmic dance music of Panama, and scored dances for the string section.

Bohemian composer Antonin Dvořák, often inspired by folk music, gives Cuban-American cellist Thomas Mesa the perfect vehicle to share his passion and artistry in his mammoth and definitive Cello Concerto.

The concert concludes with the second symphony of Robert Schumann, the great Romantic composer of songs and symphonies, whose lyrical gifts are unparalleled.

In addition to free parking on concert nights for SSO concert-goers, the MGM Springfield Loop, through PVTA service, provides free public transportation that has several stops within walking distance from Symphony Hall. 

Tickets start at $15 and include free parking for SSO patrons.
