A fantastic program!

What better way to begin a fantastic season than with Hector Berlioz’s highly popular Symphonie Fantastique? The symphony tells the story of “an artist gifted with a lively imagination” and concludes with the dramatic Dream of a Witches’ Sabbath.

Owen Young is a member of the Boston Symphony Orchestra and an acclaimed concert soloist who has appeared with major orchestras here and abroad. His previous performances with the Cape Ann Symphony were received with great audience enthusiasm. Written while the composer was visiting New York, the Dvořák Cello Concerto with its hint of American folk themes is a perfect vehicle for Young’s virtuosity.
