On Monday (7/9) Springfield Daily Citizen (Missouri), Jeff Kessinger writes: “The Springfield Symphony Association was born in 1934 out of the idea of ​​bringing together local musicians who wanted to perform for the community. The Springfield Symphony’s first concert was on February 26, 1935. The Springfield Symphony Orchestra is playing ‘Puttin’ on the Ritz’ in its 90th anniversary season with nine shows at the Juanita K. Hammons Hall for the Arts. In a press release, the organization pointed out that it has performed every year since 1935, in war and peace, in prosperity and poverty – and even during a pandemic… The theme of ‘Puttin’ on the Ritz’ ties in with the orchestra’s origins in the 1930s. The decade was a time of political upheaval and the Great Depression. It was also an era of transformative new movements in the arts, including Art Deco and the establishment of jazz as a truly American art form. The season begins September 14 at 7:30 p.m. … The show includes Rimsky-Korsakov’s triumphant “Procession of the Nobles” and, for the first time in the Springfield Symphony Orchestra’s history, Shostakovich’s Tenth Symphony, a musical portrait of life in Russia under Stalin.” The article includes descriptions of each of the season’s programs.
