Baltimore-based soprano Janice Chandler-Eteme returns to the stage with the Annapolis Symphony to sing Strauss' Vier letzte Lieder (Four Last Songs). In March 2019, she sang "Ode to Joy" along with the U.S. Naval Academy Glee Club in a rousing rendition of Beethoven's Symphony No. 9.
The 2020-21 Season concludes with a performance featuring Wu Man, the world's reigning pipa virtuoso. Together with the Annapolis Symphony, she will perform Zhao Jiping's Pipa Concerto No. 2. The pipa, sometimes called the Chinese lute, is a four-stringed instrument that has been around for 2,000 years. The concerto is complimented by Debussy's La Mer, one of the extraordinary achievement in symphonic music.
Join a dynamic group of music lovers who work to support the Annapolis Symphony Orchestra and its education programs at events throughout the year. FASO activities include participation in the Symphony's Music Van program with local schools, providing gift baskets to visiting guest artists, and serving dinner to Symphony musicians at pre-concert rehearsals.
