Ambler Symphony performs an original composition entitled Reflections on Boathouse Row by second violinist and Board President John Mahony. Critically acclaimed cellist Stephen Framil joins the orchestra to perform the Cello Concerto in B minor by Antonin Dvorak, one of the cornerstones of the cello repertoire. Franz Schubert’s haunting Fantasy in F minor was written as a piano duet, but was transcribed for orchestra several years after his death to allow larger audiences to hear this masterpiece. Concluding the concert, the thrilling Pines of Rome by Ottorino Respighi.
