with a new concert experience
(Tuesday, October 15, Orlando, FL) – The Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra brings a fresh and illuminating musical experience to Orlando with Inside the Score: Symphonie Fantastique on Sunday, November 17 at 3 p.m. at Bob Carr Theater.
In this new concert experience, Music Director Eric Jacobsen leads the audience through the wild stories behind Hector Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique. Shockingly original, Symphonie Fantastique has captivated concertgoers for nearly two centuries. Complete with highlighted excerpts, and stunning live videography provided by Full Sail University, be closer to the musicians than ever before.
In this two-part concert event, Music Director Eric Jacobsen will spend the first half exploring the musical ideas and effects within the score, bringing to life the “March to the Scaffold” and the “Dream of a Witches Sabbath.” The second half culminates in a full performance of Symphonie Fantastique by the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra.
The concert will be preceded by a special brunch event at the Marriott Orlando Downtown with musical entertainment, live auction, special prizes, plated brunch, mimosa, and Bloody Mary bar. Join the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra and Music Director Eric Jacobsen at Le Brunch Fantastique for a whimsical, elegant pre-concert brunch to celebrate a fresh musical experience featuring composer Hector Berlioz and his French heritage. All proceeds benefit the continued growth of the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra.
Inside the Score is sponsored by Philip and Andrea Kobrin in memory of Sara and Jack Kobrin, Ruth and Kent Griffin. Full Sail University is the Video Production Sponsor.
