The Season Overture

By definition, an “overture” is the first movement of a composition or suite that introduces the listener to an overall theme, building tension and drama as the audience anticipates what is to come. The first concert of the season will reintroduce our audience to Umstattd Hall after being away for so long, programmed to build hope and joy as live music continues to bounce back across the country. To say we are thrilled would be an understatement.

Prelude for Strings

Twenty-five years young but already a widely acclaimed force to be reckoned with, composer Quinn Mason makes his Umstattd Hall and Canton Symphony Orchestra debuts. Mason already has over ten major orchestral compositions to his name, and his music has been performed by such orchestras as the Dallas and Utah Symphonies, among many others. His delightful Irish Dance Suite takes its inspiration from the folk music of Ireland and the string orchestra suites of Gustav Holst.
