The finale of Summer Stars was held on August 1 in the Great Auditorium. It was a magnificent concert.  The music floated out from the open doors to be heard by passersby in the park.

The program had to be changed with just a few days of lead time, but Maestro Jason Tramm was able to put together a lovely and seamless musical event.

The four movements of Scheherazade by Rimsky- Korsakov, a difficult piece, was wonderful with soloist Byung Kook Kwak on violin. It was the story of “A Thousand and One Nights,  and there even was a storm at sea and a ship going to pieces on a rock. There is a taste of that below with Part III  ” The Young Prince and the Young Princess.”

And the Tannhauser Overture, by Wagner, was thrilling with the Mid-Atlantic Symphony Orchestra reverberating through the wooden acoustics of the Great Auditorium with no sound enhancement in this program.

Ronald Naldi’s solo was gorgeous as always. He performed a piece from Carmen, and you can get an idea from Eileen’s video clip below.  There is a brief glitch, but then it goes on. The iPhone XS does a respectable job with the sound.
