DSO’s Second Chamber Series Concert December 11, 2018

Principals David Southorn and Lura Johnson to perform in Hotel du Pont’s Gold Ballroom


The 2018-2019 Delaware Symphony Orchestra Chamber Series will continue on Tuesday, December 11, 2018, beginning at 7:30 p.m. in the Gold Ballroom of the Hotel du Pont in downtown Wilmington. The concert will feature the Delaware Symphony’s Principal First Violin and Concertmaster, David Southorn, and Principal Keyboard, Lura Johnson, performing Sonatas by Beethoven (no.8) and Franck, and Britten’s Suite Op.6.

“The Franck Sonata is one of the true masterpieces of the violin-piano repertoire, so it will be a real treat for our audience to hear this work performed live,” said Alan Jordan, Executive Director of the DSO. “It also pairs nicely with the earlier Beethoven and later Britten works on the program, to make a wonderful evening of music.”

Tickets are $62 ($16 for students 21 and under, with ID) and may be ordered online at www.delawaresymphony.org, or by calling the Delaware Symphony office at 302-656-7442. Admission includes complimentary Champagne as well as the hotel’s beloved macaroons and a variety of desserts from their award-winning pastry kitchen during intermission.
