Loudoun Symphony Orchestra Concert — Shostakovich and Chaplin!
19019 Upper Belmont Pl
Leesburg, VA 20176
The Loudoun Symphony Orchestra presents: Shostakovich and Chaplin
Loudoun Symphony Orchestra Conductor Finalist Concert #2
With Maestro Jason Love, conductor and finalist for the LSO conductor position
Written in the wake of a rebuke from Stalin, Shostakovich created not only one of the most moving and dramatic symphonies ever written, but possibly saved his own life in the process. Acknowledging the award of an honorary doctorate, Brahms’ salute to learning weaves actual student songs of the era into one of his most exuberant scores. Catholic University composer Andrew Earle Simpson’s new score to the classic Chaplin short The Immigrant rounds out this eclectic program.
Our search committee has chosen Maestro Jason Love as one of three finalists for the LSO conductor position. Attend the concert and tell us what you think. Should Maestro Love become the LSO’s next conductor?
Academic Festival Overture, J. Brahms
Charlie Chaplin’s “The Immigrant”, A. Simpson
Symphony No. 5, D. Shostakovich
