Annie, based on the popular comic strip by Harold Gray, has become a worldwide phenomenon and was the winner of seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical. The beloved book and score by Tony Award winners, Thomas Meehan, Charles Strouse and Martin Charnin, features some of the greatest musical theatre hits ever written, including Maybe, Hard Knock Life and Tomorrow. With equal measures of pluck and positivity, little orphan Annie is determined to find the parents who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of a New York City Orphanage that is run by the cruel, embittered Miss Hannigan. With the help of the other girls in the orphanage, Annie escapes to the wondrous world of NYC in search of her past but finds her future.
At the CSO, the season kicks off with an original fanfare entitled Fanfare for a New Era composed by CSO Board Member Jerry Torr, who will also conduct his piece. Music Director Janna Hymes then takes the stage for the remainder of the concert. From the familiar notes of Grieg’s Peer Gynt Suit No. 1 to Brahms’ joyous and lyrical Academic Festival Overture, the musical prowess of the entire orchestra takes the spotlight. Barber’s emotional Adagio for Strings well illustrates the expertise and lushness of play within the CSO string section. While the CSO has played many of Beethoven’s pieces throughout the years, it has been some time since performing his extraordinary Symphony No. 3 in E-flat Major.
