The Quincy Symphony Orchestra launches the return of in-person concerts with “New Beginnings” on April 17. The 3 p.m. concert will be held at Morrison Theater in Quincy Junior High. Under the direction of Dr. Bruce Briney, the orchestra will perform bright and joyful music to celebrate the occasion.
The concert opens with Haydn’s joyful “Symphony No. 6 (subtitled “The morning”) which uses individual instruments of the ensemble in an almost concerto-like fashion. Listeners will hear solos by the flute, violin, cello, bassoon, and double bass. Haydn’s original ensemble included only 10-15 musicians, so this context fits well with the QSO’s restricted forces this pandemic year.
