This will be our premiere presentation introducing our new conductor and musical advisor, Mr. Tom Riccobono. Tom will not only be conducting but will be our featured soloist. He will be performing “Concertino for Trombone” written by Larsson. The BASO has a festive theme involving the Nordic regions of the world. “Findlandia” by Sibelius will showcase our brass section. There will be a brass ensemble, “Canzona Duodecimi Toni” by Gabrieli and “Funeral March” (In Memory of Rikard Nordraak) by Grieg. During intermission, not only will we provide cookies and a cold refreshment, but we will be auctioning off the beautiful Nordic flower arrangement from Victoria Florals in Benzonia.
The second half of the program will feature Ralph Vaughn Williams, “English Folk Songs.” We will also offer three Johann Strauss pieces, “Trisch Tratsch Polka”, “Thunder and Lightning Polka”, and “Radetsky March.” The Benzie Area Symphony Orchestra will end the program with “The Stars and Stripes Forever”, by John Philip Sousa.
