Our final concert of our anniversary season can be characterized as Olympic, Glorious, and Bombastic! Michael Torke’s Javelin, originally commissioned for the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra’s 50th Anniversary, was also featured in that city’s Summer Olympics in 1996. The 591 measures is but nine minutes long, thus rocketing us through the piece like a javelin through the air. Poulenc’s cherished Gloria features our SOST chorus in this masterpiece. We end the evening with Tchaikovsky’s classic 1812 Overture with brass, cannons, and chorus for a glorious conclusion to a great year!
