It is our 50th Anniversary!

A SEASON TO CELEBRATE
Season Finale
OUR FINAL MAINSTAGE PERFORMANCE: MAGAGNA FAMILY TRUST MASTERWORK, CELEBRATING TCHAIKOVSKY ON SATURDAY MAY 7TH AT 8PM AT PEOPLES SECURITY BANK THEATER AT LACKAWANNA COLLEGE, SCRANTON.
Opening this concert is one of Tchaikovsky’s best-loved works, the Romeo and Juliet Overture. The piece’s famous love theme has sunk into the world’s consciousness and is perhaps one of the most recognizable melodies in the world.

Alberto Parrini, the Philharmonic’s principal cellist, is the soloist in Tchaikovsky’s Variations on a Rococo Theme. The work’s long lyrical melodies, virtuosic technical passages and grandiose cadenzas are sure to amaze!

Closing the concert is Tchaikovsky’s glorious Symphony No. 5. Hear our orchestra spotlighted in this powerful symphonic work!

ENJOY THE PRE-CONCERT TALK AT 7PM INSIDE THE THEATER.
