OUR CONCERTS

 

The MRO's 2014-2015 season boasts a line-up of soloists and symphonic works that is sure to further raise the bar of what great classical should be. 



To open their second season as the Resident Orchestra at the Buckman Performing Arts Center, the MRO is thrilled to welcome back the world-class soprano Mary Wilson in a Season Opening Gala. After her flawless performance in the 2013-2014 Season Finale, the orchestra had to have her back for an evening of favorite arias and songs.

 

In a return performance with the MRO, Steinway Artist pianist Victor Asuncion will thrill audiences with his "poised and imaginative playing". As a recitalist and concerto soloist, he has appeared in major concert halls in Brazil, Canada, Japan, Mexico, Turkey, and the Philippines. In the Buckman with the MRO, Victor will perform Tchaikovsky's famous Piano Concerto No. 1 in b flat minor.

 

Violinist Gregory Maytan will return to perform the Prokofiev Violin Concerto in g minor in March 2015. Gregory gave a stunning MRO debut performance of the Beethoven Violin Concerto last season in a collaboration concert with the Beethoven Club of Memphis.

 

Maker her MRO debut, violinist Sunyoung Lee will join the orchestra for a Season Finale performance of the beautiful Bruch Violin Concerto No. 1 in g minor. Sunyoung has appeared as a soloist with the Rutgers University Youth Orchestra, NJ, the Woodstock Chamber Orchestra in N.Y, and the Eroica Ensemble in Memphis performing the Saint-Saens No.3 violin concerto and Vivaldi's b minor Concerto for Four Violins with Paul Roby, associate principal second violin in the Philadelphia Orchestra.

 

All concerts are performed at the Buckman Performing Arts Center with free admission. Whether you live in Memphis or on the other side of the globe, each concert is streamed live on our UStream account.
