MUSIC DIRECTOR: TIMOTHY MUFFITT


Founded in 1947, the Baton Rouge Symphony is the oldest arts organization in the region and the oldest professional orchestra in the state. Its programs include a Symphony League, a Symphony Chorus, and the Louisiana Youth Orchestras. The Baton Rouge Symphony Orchestra also reaches over 7,000 young people per year while conducting numerous education and outreach programs.

The Baton Rouge Symphony Orchestra’s season consists of a nine-concert Masterworks series as well as a three-concert Chamber Series. The Chamber Series is sponsored by Carole and Charles Lamar. The Irene W. and C.B. Pennington Foundation “Great Performers in Concert” series has brought world-class talent to Louisiana’s capital city for the past ten years. These one-night only concerts in collaboration with the orchestra have featured artists such as Yo-Yo Ma, Renee Fleming, Chris Botti, Itzhak Perlman, and most recently, Natalie Cole.

Baton Rouge Symphony programs are made possible in part by: Arts Council of Greater Baton Rouge; Community Funds for the Arts Campaign; City of Baton Rouge and the Parish of East Baton Rouge; Louisiana State Arts Council, Division of the Arts.

Thursday, April 10, 2014 @ 7:30 p.m.
Rainbow Body of the American composer Christopher Theofanidis was written 14 years ago and has been bringing audiences to their feet ever since. It is a work rooted in ancient spirituality and medieval music, but it makes a very powerful statement for today. Two other composers noted for powerful statements, Beethoven and Dvorak, round out this program with works brimming with the beauty and drama for which those composers are known. This concert also features highly-acclaimed pianist Viktor Valkov, winner of the 2012 New Orleans International Piano Competition.
