You won’t want to miss this opening concert of the season featuring the full Ocala Symphony Orchestra and some of the spookiest tone poems ever written! Dip your toe into magic with Paul Dukas’ The Sorcerer’s Apprentice and descend into Dante’s Inferno with Tchaikovsky’s Francesca da Rimini – a tale of love, betrayal, and the moaning, swirling souls of the underworld. In the second half of this spooktacular, Mussorgsky asks us to spend a Night on Bald Mountain and we’ll depart into the dark with Dvořák’s The Golden Spinning Wheel, a grotesque story of murder, magic, wolves, forests, and one special spinning wheel.

Matthew Wardell, Music Director and Conductor
