PALM BEACH, FL (Feb. 8, 2015) – Members of the Palm Beach Symphony continued celebrations of a New Year with the Symphony’s first concert of 2015, “Zukunftsmusik: Music of the Future,” and an après dinner at Palm Beach’s private dining club, Club Colette.
Conducted by Maestro Ramón Tebar, the evening’s performance at Palm Beach Atlantic University’s DeSantis Family Chapel entertained with works by “new” music composers of their time, Wagner and Bruckner. The German word ‘Zukunftsmusik,’ translated in English to ‘music of the future,’ is how Wagner’s music was defined. Bruckner, an heir to Wagner’s “new” music, made an appropriate pairing of both composers and an engaging concert.
“Tebar led his 70-piece orchestra through a thrilling performance of this symphony, transforming himself from a talented and gifted conductor into a much higher category of musician; only someone with exceptional prowess could draw such excellent playing from an orchestra,” said critic Rex Hearn for the Palm Beach Arts Paper.
The engaging concert set the tone for the festive dinner to follow when Symphony members toasted with friends new and old. Supporters attending the musical evening included Leslie Rose and Carole Nugent, Sandra and Paul Goldner, Marietta and Dale McNulty, Doris Hastings, Lloyd Mims and Virginia Mims, Jeannine Merrien, Gladys Benenson, Nannette Cassidy, John Pohanka, Arlette Gordon, Leslie Rogers Blum, Christa Kramer, Renate Mieriens, Debra and Todd Barron, Walter Baum and Marguerite Rosner, Diana Paxton and Louise Lord.
