The Chautauqua Symphony Orchestra again played a mighty range — perhaps more rangy than many Tuesday evenings. The orchestra was impressive.
At 8:15 p.m. tonight in the Amphitheater, music director candidate Maximiano Valdés will be leading the Chautauqua Symphony Orchestra for a program highlighting an alumna of the Institution: soprano Leela Subramaniam.
The chilly evening air and half-empty wooden pews of the Amphitheater may have dampened the spirits of patrons Monday night during Francis Poulenc’s Dialogues of the Carmelites, performed by students from the School of Music’s Voice Program and the Music School Festival Orchestra. The performers, though, couldn’t have asked for a better environment for the hauntingly austere production.
