With passion and finesse, the Allentown Symphony Orchestra (ASO) plays time-honored masterworks, newly commissioned premieres by prominent composers, and unusual and intriguing repertoire. Among the ASO’s honors is the American Prize in Orchestral Performance. A highlight of the Williams Center program will be the world premiere of an ASO-commissioned work by Composer-in-Residence Clarice Assad. Guitarist Petrit Çeku, a winner of the Schadt String Competition, will perform two of the most popular guitar works in the repertoire: Antonio Vivaldi’s Guitar Concerto in D and Joaquín Rodrigo’s Fantasia para un gentilhombre.
Program: Handel / “Arrival of the Queen of Sheba” from Solomon // Vivaldi / Guitar Concerto in D // Joaquín Rodrigo / Fantasia para un gentilhombre // Clarice Assad / New commissioned work // Mozart / Symphony No. 41 “Jupiter”
