TPO Presents A Season of Stories: Chapter 1 “Overtures to the TPO”
TPO’s first concert this 41st season features a compilation of well-known overtures – orchestral pieces – that are usually presented at the beginning of an opera, play, oratorio, or other extended musical work. It is often used to give a preview of themes that will be more fully expanded upon later in the work they precede. Dr. Barry Kraus, Director of Bands and Coordinator of Instrumental Ensembles at Belmont University, will lead the orchestra this evening. Among the pieces to be performed are The Marriage of Figaro Overture by W.A. Mozart, William Tell Overture by Rossini, and West Side Story by Leonard Bernstein, and others.
