The much-anticipate debut of the Loudoun Symphony Orchestra’s new conductor Maestra Nancia D’Alimonte happens Saturday night at St. David’s Episcopal Church in Ashburn.
D’Alimonte was hired in June to direct the 65-member community orchestra following the 2016 death of Marc Allen McCoy, who held the baton for 18 years. She was selected from a pool of 74 applicants and was one of three finalists to conduct audition performances last spring.
The symphony’s season opening performance is entitled “New Horizons” and is intended to feature pieces that are fresh and cutting-edge. The program includes Weber’s “Oberon Overture,” selections from Bizet’s “L’Arlesienne Suites nos. 1 & 2,” and Beethoven’s “Symphony no. 3, Op. 55, E flat Major (Eroica).”
Doors open at 7:30 p.m. for the 8 p.m. performance. Tickets are $30 for adults, $25 for seniors and free for youth 12 and under. Click here for details and tickets purchases. Season subscriptions are also available.
