Opening Night for Arild's Inaugural Season with RPO is Coming Soon!

Be there to welcome the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra's new Music Director Arild Remmereit for the launch of his inaugural season on September 30 and October 1 in Kodak Hall.

Plus, you can help celebrate Arild’s opening concert by attending the signature Red Carpet Spectacular on Friday, September 30. This once-in-a-lifetime event features a pre-concert dinner, the annual Red Carpet Walk, and a Rooftop Party on the East End Garage with dancing to the Latin sounds of Orquesta Antonetti. Click here for more information.

To begin his tenure, Arild Remmereit has selected joyous works from his three musical homes. From his native Norway, the Violin Romance of Johan Svendsen, featuring concertmaster Juliana Athayde (The Caroline W. Gannett & Clayla Ward Chair). From his musical home, Vienna, exhilarating selections by Johann Strauss, Jr.

And now, as he moves to America, Arild presents the "Gaelic" Symphony of Amy Beach. Contemporary with Dvořák’s "New World" Symphony, this masterwork of the late 19th century is too rarely performed, and ushers in a season-long celebration of the contributions of women composers.

Arild will energize the masterworks in ways that are fresh and thrilling, and will bring us great music we will be eager to get to know. Use this link to watch a YouTube video of Arild talking about the coming season.

Tickets start at $15. For tickets, call 454-2100 or click here to purchase online.
