Palm Beach Symphony Prepared to Orchestrate 40th Anniversary Season

PALM BEACH, FL (December 2, 2013) – The Palm Beach Symphony announced today that Maestro Ramón Tebar has returned from his tour of engagements in Europe and renewed his three year contract with the Symphony at the commencement of its celebratory 40th Anniversary Season.  This season will feature five performances at five well known venues.

The first concert, “Four Decades, Forty Years, Four Arts,” will open with Mozart’s 40th Symphony and Beethoven’s 4th Symphony to align as many fours as the Maestro could put together. This concert will be held at Society of the Four Arts on December 4, 2013 at 7:00 p.m.

Kicking off the New Year, the second concert includes Vivaldi’s Four Seasons and Piazolla’s Four Seasons of Buenos Aires featuring violinist Itamar Zorman. The venue for another exercise in fours will be the Henry Morrison Flagler Museum on January 9, 2014 at 7:30 p.m.

The Symphony’s third concert, “Tubes & Pipes,” features the Palm Beach Symphony Brass and Percussion Section and organist Hal Pysher performing an organ concerto with music by Copland, Muhly, Strauss, Gabrieli and more on the magnificent Bethesda-By-The-Sea pipe organ in the confines of a gothic church so appropriate for that music. The performance will be held on February 3, 2014 at 7:30 p.m. at the Bethesda-By-The-Sea Episcopal Church in Palm Beach.

Featuring one of the Palm Beach Symphony’s guest stars pianist Lola Astanova performing Chopin’s Piano concerto No.2; the fourth concert will take place in the beautiful Mar-a-Lago grand ballroom, specially fitted as a Trump concert hall on March 18, 2014 at 7:30 p.m.

At the baton of Maestro Tebar, the fifth and final concert “Romantics at the Kravis,” will be held on Sunday, April 6, 2014 at 3:00 p.m. at the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts. Tebar presents a program of Berlioz, Sibelius, Grieg and Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 5 for the grand finale of the Palm Beach Symphony’s 40th Anniversary Season.

“We are pleased to have Maestro Tebar as our Artistic & Music Director, the youngest Spanish conductor taking charge of an American symphony orchestra, and look forward to a spectacular 40th anniversary season under his direction,” noted Dale McNulty, president of the Palm Beach Symphony Board of Directors. “Returning from his recent European tour where he earned rave reviews from critics and fascinated audiences in famous European music houses, Tebar brings back with him the freshness and excitement for a spirited season of performances.”

Single tickets are now on sale and season subscriptions are available for $250. Additionally, memberships are offered at a variety of levels from $1,600-$25,000. Following each performance, Palm Beach Symphony members enjoy an après dinner at one of Palm Beach’s favorite restaurants.  The Sunday matinee concert in April will be preceded by a brunch for members and guests in the Cohen Pavilion of the Kravis Center.
