STAMFORD, CT - On February 22 & 23, 2020, Music Director Designate, Michael Stern will unveil the program for his inaugural 2020-2021 season at a special pre-concert presentation for all concertgoers attending the weekend’s concerts. It will take place at the Palace Theatre at 6:30 pm on Saturday, February 22 and 2:00 pm on Sunday, February 23. Michael Stern commented, “I am excited to reveal our programs for next season, which will be our first year together, highlighting a list of distinguished soloists who will share the stage with us, some of whom are making their overdue debuts with the orchestra. And as well, throughout the musical year, I look forward to previewing the broad mix of great works both old and new that we will present over the course of our series, cherished masterpieces as well as thrilling new discoveries, including large scale works that have been absent from the orchestra’s programming for too long. I cannot wait to further my connections with all the musicians of the Stamford Symphony and the audience in a community in a place that I too, call home”

Stamford Symphony has appointed Michael Stern as its fourth Music Director. His tenure officially begins with the 2020-21 concert season, but his partnership began this season with the Opening Weekend and continues with Happy Birthday, Beethoven on February 22 & 23. He will be conducting an all Beethoven program in commemoration of the composer’s 250th birthday – part of a worldwide celebration.

Happy Birthday, Beethoven will feature three varied works by Beethoven including the Overture to Coriolan, and Symphony No. 7, which is frequently heard in film and TV including “The King’s Speech” and “Mr. Holland’s Opus”. Michael Stern has invited world-renowned violinist, Pamela Frank to play Beethoven’s Violin Concerto. Pamela Frank has been described as having “… a big, rich sound that vibrates. Phrasing breathes with great purpose. Even single notes don’t leave the strings without meaning.” -- Philadelphia Inquirer
