About the event

Miriam Burns, conductor

Jeff Ward, bassoon

Mozart - Bassoon Concerto, K. 191  

Florence Price - Adoration for Strings                                        

Mozart - Symphony No. 40 in G minor

It is our pleasure to feature Paragon Philharmonia’s own Principal Bassoon and Executive

Director, Jeff Ward, performing Mozart’s bassoon concerto.

Florence Price’s little gem, Adoration, is performed in numerous formats, featuring various solo

instruments or ensembles. All are exceptionally beautiful. We present the version for strings.

The 40th Symphony is one of Mozart’s most well-known and greatly admired works, and one of

only two symphonies he wrote in a minor key (both of which were in G minor!). Mozart later

revised it to include clarinets; this is the original version. Particular aspects of the work inspired

significant composers, including Beethoven, Schubert, Schumann, Mendelssohn and Brahms. It

is a masterpiece of foreboding urgency and passion.

Please join Maestra Burns and the musicians of Paragon Philharmonia for hors d'oeuvres and drinks provided by Amanada Seitz catering following the performance!

Tickets may also be purchased with check. Please Include title of concert in memo line. Mail to:
