Concert marks debut of Palm Beach Symphony at new, state-of-the-art hall
Palm Beach, Fla. (January 18, 2015) — Palm Beach Symphony will bring a world-class classical music concert to northern Palm Beach County on Wednesday, January 27, 2016 with its first performance at Benjamin Hall in Palm Beach Gardens, “Two German Romantics.” This concert marks the debut of the Palm Beach Symphony at the new, state-of-the-art hall as well as the first professional performance for this venue.
Artistic & Music Director, Ramón Tebar, will conduct two romantic symphonies by well-known German composers, Schumann and Brahms, both specifically selected and arranged for this new venue. Tebar will lead the orchestra in Robert Schumann’s Symphony No. 1, Op. 38, written while basking in the glow of his recent marriage and filled with joyful melodies. To be followed by Johannes Brahms’ Symphony No. 4, Op. 98, the composer’s last symphony and arguably his most monumental work.
“These symphonic masterpieces are filled with soaring melodies and are perfectly suited for this stunning facility with incredible acoustics,” said Ramón Tebar, acclaimed conductor for the Palm Beach Symphony. “I was inspired by the new venue and can’t wait to share my vision with the audience.”
The Palm Beach Symphony has long been a cultural group based in the historic venues of Palm Beach. Now this classical music arts organization is thrilled to be expanding its scope throughout the county with increased educational and community outreach programs along with its first concert performance in Palm Beach Gardens. The Symphony is on a mission to bring classical music to the greater Palm Beaches with new venues that will reach a greater audience throughout our area.
“We are beyond thrilled for our first performance at Benjamin Hall,” said David McClymont, Executive Director of the Palm Beach Symphony. “This is a significant concert that marks a true turning point for our organization toward a sustained and meaningful presence in our broader community.”
General admission tickets for the Palm Beach Symphony’s “Two German Romantics” concert start at $25 and are on sale through The Symphony’s box office at 561-602-6720 or at palmbeachsymphony.org.
