Under the direction of HSO Assistant Conductor, Adam Boyles, the orchestra will ignite your passion for the well-known classics and introduce to you the prolific composer Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges. Described as “the most accomplished man in Europe” by President John Adams, Joseph Bologne was considered the first classical composer of African ancestry. While listening to Mozart 40, you will feel the excitement and drama through each note played by the HSO.
