The season starts with an evening of French Masters, featuring Georges Bizet's L'Arlesienne Suite No. 2 and other beloved works of the French Romantic and Impressionist periods. Join us for Maurice Ravel's hauntingly beautiful "Pavane for a Dead Princess", the moving lyricism of Faure's Suite from Pelleas et Melisande, the rousing "Danse Bacchanale" from Samson et Dalila by Camille Saint-Saens and Dukas' unforgettable "Sorcerer's Apprentice".

Come watch the next generation of great musicians establish their place in musical history! You won't want to miss the first annual Georgia Philharmonic Young Artists Concerto Competition Showcase, featuring four outstanding young Atlanta musicians. The concerto competition is one of several exciting new programs the Georgia Philharmonic has instituted to cultivate a vibrant arts community in metro Atlanta. Concert laureates Maya Johnson, Chelsea Sharpe, Wickliffe Simmons, and Jonathan Urizar were selected by audition in the late fall for this opportunity for a premiere performance with the Georgia Philharmonic. Join us to hear these wonderful musicians perform Pablo de Sarasate's Carmen Fantasie; Camille Saint-Saens's Introduction & Rondo Capriccioso; Edward Elgar's Cello Concerto, Op. 85; and Felix Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto in e. To open the show, we present Mozart's Overture from Die Zauberflote.

Steppes of Central Asia Lyric Masterpieces
March 19, 2011, 7 p.m.
Roswell Cultural Arts Center

Join us in March for a feast of 19th Century Lyric Masterpieces from throughout the Old World. Delight to 19th Century Russian composer Alexander Borodin's evocative In the Steppes of Central Asia, whose rich melodies in the winds and brass perfectly capture the windswept beauty of these vast plains. Next, marvel at Tchaikovsky's First Symphony, "Winter Daydreams", in which the composer bends symphonic expectations to accommodate his brilliance as a melodist. The night concludes with Beethoven's Symphony No. 7, which debuted in Vienna in 1812 and has since inspired audiences and critics alike with its lively rhythms and memorable motives. By the end of this tour, we challenge you to go home without at least one song stuck in your head. . .

The Planets Heavenly Visions
April 23, 2011, 7 p.m.
Conant Performing Arts Center,
Oglethorpe University

We close our 10th anniversary season with a night of Heavenly Visions, featuring Holst's most famous work, The Planets. You've heard it used for commercials and fireworks, now hear the whole thing. This brilliant survey of the solar system paints a series of astrological characterizations indicating each planet's potential influence on the human psyche. Earlier in the evening, sink into the harmonic wonder of Vaughan Williams' 1910 Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis, inspired by Anglican melodic lines from the English Renaissance of the 1500s. We open with this season's exciting Premiere Program debut of an original classical work, Discovery, by modern Atlanta composer Seyed Safavynia. This concert is co-sponsored by Oglethorpe University's Arts & Ideas at Oglethorpe series.
