BOZEMAN SYMPHONY SOCIETY

The Bozeman Symphony presents performances of “Sinfonia Concertante” on Oct. 29 and 30 at Willson Auditorium in Bozeman, featuring the music of composers Miklós Rózsa and Antonín Dvořák.

The golden age of Hollywood produced not only epic movies, but also epic movie scores, providing classically trained European composers a niche in the New World. Rózsa, who won multiple Academy Awards for such films as “Ben-Hur,” was also a highly respected and sought after composer for the concert hall. His “Sinfonia Concertante,” was written for two of history’s most famous soloists: Jascha Heifetz and Gregor Piatigorsky.

For this performance, the Bozeman Symphony welcomes Dallas Symphony members, cellist Jolyon Pegis and violinist Maria Schleuning. Rounding out the program is the music of Antonín Dvořák. His upbeat “Festival March” opens the concert, and what has been dubbed his “Pastoral,” and great work, Symphony No. 8, will conclude the program.

Performances will be held Saturday, Oct. 29, at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday, Oct. 30, at 2:30 p.m. at the Willson Auditorium in downtown Bozeman.
