Experience the excitement of the NHSO’s 125th birthday bash Opening Night! This concert kicks off the NHSO’s 125th Season, as well as Maestro William Boughton’s grand finale season as music director, with the world premiere of TJ Cole’s To the Universe – a fanfare celebrating the historic relationship between the NHSO, Woolsey Hall, and the Woolsey Hall organ. NHSO musicians will become storytellers in Scheherazade – Rimsky Korsakov’s take on 1001 Arabian Nights – and Humperdinck’s delightful Hansel & Gretel Prelude. One of New Haven’s favorite soloists, Chad Hoopes, will return to the Woolsey stage for Dvořák’s Violin Concerto in A Minor.
