A safe and distanced evening of sumptuous surprise and scene-stealing music
Jackson, Mississippi, February 25, 2021—On Saturday, March 6, 2021 at 7:30pm, the Mississippi Symphony Orchestra continues its Selby and Richard McRae Foundation Bravo series with an all-strings orchestra performing “Mendelssohn and Beethoven”.
Beethoven’s String Quartet No. 11, commonly known as “Serioso”, is at the heart of this performance. This 1810 work was famously orchestrated by composer/conductor Gustav Mahler, who transferred it from four solo players to a full string orchestra in 1898. The program opens with Mendelssohn’s captivating String Symphony No. 7, one of 13 he wrote as a teen, is full of exuberance and precocious brilliance.
Tickets ($20) are available in advance only and must be purchased online at www.msotickets.com. Limited seating is socially distanced at Thalia Mara Hall, with mask and temperature check required for entry. The concert will be short (no intermission), and tickets will not be available at the door. No concessions, ticket sales or Will Call. Arrival instructions and protocol will be sent with e-tickets.
