In honor of American Heart Health Month, composer Thomas Duffy appears as guest conductor for his piece Heart Throb, a sonic depiction of a human heartbeat featuring ECSO’s principal percussionist Constance I. Coghlan. Guest artist Alan Ohkubo joins the orchestra to perform Antonin Dvorák’s Cello Concerto, hailed as one of the greatest ever written for the instrument. Works of Dmitri Shostakovich will close the concert, beginning with his tuneful Romance from The Gadfly. His Symphony No. 9 is light and playful, surprising at times, and ends the concert on a buoyant note. Purchase tickets by 860-443-2876 or visiting http://bit.ly/1NR5BmV
