The Delaware Symphony Orchestra is gearing up for new season with lavish productions of Beethoven, Mozart and Mahler.
"We’re also doing the Rite of Spring of Stravinsky. (It’s a) giant piece, important piece, seminal piece," Music Director David Amato said.
He thinks this will be one of the Orchestra's most ambitious seasons with concerts big and small throughout the state.
"We’ve got a Chamber Series in February where we’re going to be commemorating the 50th anniversary of the death of Martin Luther King Jr. We’ll be doing some spirituals. We’ll also be doing Messiaen's spectacular Quartet for the End of Time."
The season kicks off Sept. 15 with its Classics Series performance of Beethoven's Symphony No. 5 at The Grand Opera House in Wilmington.
