Celebrate a weekend of love with the Hartford Symphony Orchestra with Romeo and Juliet February 14-16 

HARTFORD, CT (January 14, 2020)- Celebrate a weekend of love with the Hartford Symphony Orchestra’s Romeo and Juliet Friday February 14 through Sunday February 16 at the Belding Theater at The Bushnell in Hartford. These concerts will be conducted by HSO Assistant Conductor Adam Boyles and feature Scott McIntosh on the trumpet. For tickets and information, call 860-987-5900 or visit harfordsymphony.org. 

This program features Kendall’s The Spark Catchers, Tomasi’s Trumpet Concerto, Rodgers’ My Funny Valentine and Prokofiev’s Selections from Romeo and Juliet, Op. 64. 

The HSO brings to life one of the greatest love stories of all time! Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet has inspired works of art in all mediums, and the music from Prokofiev’s ballet captures all of the bliss, humor, drama, and tragedy of the play. Enjoy contemporary composer Hannah Kendall’s imaginative The Spark Catchers, inspired by the poem of the same name by Lemn Sissay, while Tomasi’s playful Trumpet Concerto and Rodgers fan favorite My Funny Valentine will feature HSO’s principal trumpet, Scott McIntosh.  

Please join us for a pre-concert talk led by Adam Boyles one hour prior to curtain of each performance.
