Sounding Together: Origins of the Symphony
Andrew Arceci, the new Artistic Director of Arcadia Players, will lead his inaugural in-person concert exploring the origins of the symphonic genre. The program will include Vivaldi’s Sinfonia-Al Santo Sepolcro, Handel’s “Sinfony" from Messiah, and early string symphonies by Johan Helmich Roman, Giovanni Battista Sammartini, Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach, and others.
Tickets are available at arcadiaplayers.org or at the door. To welcome all our friends back, and to thank you for your support, tickets will be "pay what you wish," with a suggested donation of $25 each.
Your safety and that of our performers is of the utmost importance. Proof of full vaccination will be required at the door. Masks are required at all times. The approximately 1-hour program will be performed without intermission. You are invited to meet Andrew Arceci following the performance.
