We begin this season with a very special milestone – our 10th Anniversary Annual Christmas Gala & Holiday Pops Concert. Yes, that’s right, ten years of performing the best holiday music in all of the north metro area! Your season ticket ensures a seat among what will be a sold out audience of 1,400 patrons as we bring you the full JCSO and Christmas Gala Chorus, the return of special featured guest Jazz Trumpeter/Big Band Performer Joe Gransden and his quartet, along with guest soloists and just perhaps a few surprises! We return to the beautiful Johns Creek United Methodist Church on Saturday, December 19th at 8:00pm. Note that these tickets are for general admission seating, mailed Fall 2015.
For the next two concerts, we return to the Theater at Johns Creek High School. On Saturday, February 27, 2016 we present “Side by Side!” This very special evening of music enables us to support our commitment of providing professional assistance to the area’s best high school musicians by having them perform on stage with the JCSO. For the first part of our evening, there will be over 80 musicians on stage at the same time! We welcome the Georgia Piedmont Youth Orchestra (GPYO) and their conductor Rolando Salazar. Selections will include Academic Festival Overture by Brahms, Prelude to Die Meistersinger by Wagner, and Danse Bacchanale from Samson and Delilah by Saint-Saens. After intermission, the JCSO returns to perform Beethoven’s 5th.
On May 14th we present our season finale a “Salute to Love!” This pops tribute will highlight the music of love and romance from Bacharach to Bizet. Enjoy musical selections from Dr. Zhivago and West Side Story, medleys from Burt Bacharach along with other pops classics, and some light classical tributes such as Tchaikovsky’s Romeo and Juliet Fantasy Overture and Bizet’s Carmen Suite No.1. A soprano soloist and a few other special guests will make this an outstanding way to conclude Season Nine! Note: Tickets for February and May are reserved and will be mailed sometime after January 2016.
