Warren Philharmonic moves season to First Presbyterian

The Warren Philharmonic Orchestra will move to First Presbyterian Church for its 54th season.

The second concert of the 2018-19 season was moved to the downtown Warren church due to a scheduling conflict at Christ Episcopal Church, the orchestra’s home for the last decade.

The 2019-20 season opens with “Magic Spells!” Oct. 6. Led by Music Director and Conductor Susan Davenny Wyner, the orchestra will perform “Abu Hassan Overture” by Carl Maria von Weber, Symphony in D Major by C.P.E. Bach, “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” by Paul Dukas, “Witches Music” from “Macbeth” by Giuseppe Verdi, “Night on Bald Mountain” by Modest Mussorgsky and “Upbeat!” by Ellen Taaffe Zwilich.?

The orchestra will be accompanied by special guest soloists to be announced, and the winners of the 2019-2020 Art in Music Contest will be recognized.

“Paris in Spring!” is the title of the April 30, 2020, performance. The orchestra will play Paris Symphony No. 31 by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, “Pulse” by Margaret Brouwer, two pieces from “Nocturnes” by Claude Debussy and “The Firebird Suite” by Igor Stravinsky.?

The Warren Philharmonic Orchestra is composed of 50 of the area’s finest professional musicians. In addition to its concerts for the public, the orchestra has performed free school concerts for thousands of area school children. The Strings of Joy program provides free violin lessons to selected students in grades 3-7 from Trumbull County schools.

Both concerts start at 3 p.m. at the church, 256 Mahoning Ave. NW, Warren.

Season subscribers receive a ticket for both concerts and a free additional ticket to bring a friend to either performances. Flex plans allow the use of any ticket for either concert this season. Season tickets are $50 for adults, $45 for senior citizens and $15 for students ages 13 to 21 and are available online at warrenphilharmonic.org and by calling 330-399-3606.

Single performance tickets are available at the door. Children ages 12 and younger are admitted free when accompanied by an adult.
