To close out another thrilling season the A2SO presents the pièce de résistance, Orff's Carmina Burana. Based on 24 of the poems found in the medieval collection Songs of Beuern, Carmina Burana was influenced melodically by late Renaissance and early Baroque models. The constantly changing rhythmic quality of Orff's music has, along with the caesura, or complete stop in meter/poetry, created a very controversial feel- so much that the rhythmic complexities of the piece are often overlooked. Come explore the fickleness of fortune and wealth, the ephemeral nature of life, the joy of the return of Spring, and the pleasures and perils of sin with the orchestral power of the A2SO led by Maestro Arie Lipsky.

    Welcome to We Speak Music, the 83rd season of performance by the Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra, under the guidance of our Music Director and Conductor, Arie Lipsky.

    Ann Arbor has a rich collection of academic, cultural, and sports institutions, and the Ann Arbor Symphony has a well-deserved place in its pantheon. In addition to our mainstage concerts, the A2SO reaches a broad swath of generations from the very young at KinderConcerts and

    Petting Zoos, to school children at Youth concerts and visits to schools by Arie and our small ensembles, and to our senior friends at our daytime Afternoon Delights concerts.

    I am new to town, having been in Ann Arbor only 30 years. During that time I have experienced the passing of some significant institutions, both large and small, from Pfizer and Borders to Drakes, Liberty Records and Quality Bakery. It is a great reminder that we must never be complacent about what we have! The A2SOs tradition of musical excellence is sustained by ticket purchases by our patrons, and by generous support received from our individual and institutional sponsors. Without your financial support, these mainstage concerts would not be possible. Thank You!

    Enjoy tonights concert!

    Your Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra

    From its inception as a shared dream among a group of music-loving friends to its establishment as a premier regional orchestra, through the leadership of 13 conductors over the course of 83 years, the Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra remains passionately committed to enriching Michigans culture through musical performance and dedicated connection to the community.

    The A2SO (then the Ann Arbor Community Orchestra, and later the Ann Arbor Civic Orchestra) offered its first major program in November 1931, after being founded in 1928. By 1935 the orchestra was organized under the general administration of Ann Arbors Parks and Recreation Department. In 1941, distinguished music educator Joseph Maddy, who had founded what would later become the Interlochen Center for the Arts, became the fourth conductor of the Symphony, which was still made up of amateur players. By 1986, the A2SO had become a fully professional orchestra under conductor Carl St.Clair. In 2000, Arie Lipsky was chosen as the organizations new Music Director, and the Symphony has grown in its artistic quality ever since.

    A2SO concerts frequently feature world-class guest soloists, including Anton Nel, Adam Golka, Roman Rabinovich, Arkadiy Figlin, and even American Idol star David Archuleta. But the Symphony is most privileged to be part of a community that is already enriched with musical talent; local virtuosi such as violinist Yehonotan Berick, flutist Amy Porter, cellist Anthony Elliott, vocalist Freda Herseth, and many more also join the A2SO on stage regularly.

    We are especially proud of our commitment to new works and commissioning area composers. In September 2010, the A2SO gave the Michigan premiere of Ann Arbor composer Michael Daughertys emotional tour de force Trail of Tears, featuring Amy Porter.

    In 2009, the A2SO released its first CD, featuring the music of contemporary composer Paul Fetler, as part of Naxoss American Classics series. The CD consists of live performances of Fetlers Violin Concerto No. 2, with concertmaster Aaron Berofsky as soloist, Capriccio for orchestra, and Three Poems of Walt Whitman, narrated by Thomas Blaske. described the recording as startlingly wonderful and praised Fetlers evocative lyricismin music that is itself protean in color, style, and mood.
