Springfield Symphony to honor African-American History Month

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – In honor of African-American History month, the Springfield Symphony is excited to welcome Baritone Richard Todd Payne back to the stage to sing spirituals and present his very moving interpretation of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s I Have a Dream speech at its African-American Heritage classical concert on Saturday, February 17, 2018 at 7:30 p.m. at the Juanita K. Hammons Hall for the Performing Arts.

“February is a time when we honor the achievements and lives of African-Americans, so we thought it would be great to do a concert that features music by African-American composers or music written specifically for African-American performers,” said Kyle Wiley Pickett, music director/conductor for the Springfield Symphony. “It's music that's jazzy, fun, and a lot of it is very recognizable (like "Summertime" and "I Got Plenty of Nuttin'"). We will feature music from the opera Porgy and Bess, which was one of the first pieces of theatre written specifically to feature black performers in the leading roles, and music from William Grant Still’s Afro-American Symphony, which was the first symphony written by an African-American to be performed by major orchestras in the United States. These are both really delightful, spirited, quintessentially American pieces, and I know our audiences will enjoy hearing them.”

Pickett will deliver a pre-concert talk from the stage at 6:30 p.m. and pre-concert music will begin at 7 p.m. Tickets are currently on sale at the Juanita K. Hammons Hall box office, and can be purchased by calling (417) 836-7678 or online at www.missouristatetix.com. Ticket prices range from $17 - $33 and discounts are available for students and seniors.

“I am also very excited to be working again with the terrific singer Richard Todd Payne, who last performed in our Beethoven 5 concert. He will sing several old American songs, including "Ol' Man River," which I know will just bring the house down, and anthems from the Civil Rights movement like "We Shall Overcome," and "Precious Lord." It will be a moving, thrilling, rambunctious, and fascinating concert with music that will get your toes tapping along with the great jazz rhythms of Gershwin and Still.”

Join Pickett at a free monthly event, Behind the Baton, at Ocean Zen on Thursday, February 15 (4117 S National Ave) for the opportunity to meet guest artist Richard Todd Payne and to hear Pickett talk about the music that will be performed at the February 17 concert. The meet & greet begins at 5:00 p.m. and the program will begin at 5:30 p.m.

Pickett is available for any interviews or questions. Please feel free to email him at kwpickett@gmail.com or call at (417) 837-9422. The concert is being sponsored by Mediacom, KSMU Ozarks Public Radio, and the Springfield News-Leader.

Springfield Symphony to feature 2017 Hellam Young Artists’ Competition winner

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – The Springfield Symphony will feature the 2017 Hellam Young Artists’ Competition winner, Chae-won Hong on Shostakovich’s Cello Concerto No. 1 at its Romantic Revolution classical concert on Saturday, January 20, 2018 at 7:30 p.m. at the Juanita K. Hammons Hall for the Performing Arts.

“We are starting off 2018 with some of my favorite music, including pieces by three of my favorite composers, Brahms, Shostakovich, and Wagner,” said Kyle Wiley Pickett, music director/conductor for the Springfield Symphony. “These are all masters of powerful music, each in their own way--Brahms is emotional but elegant, Shostakovich is dark and stormy, and Wagner is bombastic but beautiful. Anyone who knows me knows that Brahms is probably my absolute favorite composer. We're playing his First Symphony, which was hailed by the musical world as "Beethoven's Tenth Symphony," meaning that the torch had finally been passed from Beethoven to the next great German composer of the symphony. I always say that Brahms is the ideal mixture of head and heart. In his First Symphony you'll hear gorgeous, lush, heart-on-your-sleeve melodies, all put together in truly brilliant form.”

Pickett will deliver a pre-concert talk from the stage at 6:30 p.m. and pre-concert music will begin at 7 p.m. Tickets are currently on sale at the Juanita K. Hammons Hall box office, and can be purchased by calling (417) 836-7678 or online at www.missouristatetix.com. Ticket prices range from $17 - $33 and discounts are available for students and seniors.

“I also love the music of Shostakovich, and we're featuring Chae-won Hong, our 2017 Hellam Winner, on his stormy, dramatic, and incredibly virtuosic cello concerto,” said Pickett. “Our Wagner selection from Lohengrin is just flashy, spectacular, and energetic. It'll be a great way to kick off 2018.”

Join Pickett at a free monthly event, Behind the Baton, at Ocean Zen on Thursday, January 18 (4117 S National Ave) for the opportunity to meet guest artist Chae-won Hong and to hear Pickett talk about the music that will be performed at the January 20 concert.

Springfield Symphony joins forces with Springfield Public High School choirs

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – The Springfield Symphony is joining forces with 250 choir members from all five Springfield Public High Schools at its annual Holiday pops concert on Saturday, December 9 at 7:30 p.m. at Juanita K. Hammons Hall for the Performing Arts.

“It’s a little hard to make the case that our holiday pops concert is “Revolutionary” in the same sense of the word that most of the rest of our concerts this year are,” said Kyle Wiley Pickett, music director/conductor for the Springfield Symphony. “This concert isn’t about war or revolt or regime change….it’s just about the holiday season, when we wish each other good tidings and happiness. It’s about building snowmen and winter wonderlands and cocoa and flying reindeer and sleigh rides. It’s about gathering and remembering and reflecting and rejoicing. We’re excited to be joined by the combined choirs from Central, Glendale, Hillcrest, Kickapoo, and Parkview who will sing many of your Holiday favorites!  This is the season for jolly good cheer!”

Pre-concert music will begin at 7 p.m.  Tickets are currently on sale at the Juanita K. Hammons Hall box office, and can be purchased by calling (417) 836-7678 or online at www.missouristatetix.com.  Ticket prices range from $17 - $36 and discounts are available for students and seniors.

“In a year that has been marked by events that have brought sadness to many communities around the world, from natural disasters to terrorist attacks, perhaps it is a bold, revolutionary act to gather in joy,” said Pickett.  “Holding up the light, love, and laughter of the season is in itself an act of cheerful rebellion. Let’s throw off the darkness and embrace the giddy happiness of the season, and join together in song and celebration to lift our spirits and warm our hearts. Make a joyful noise together with us tonight, and we can make a stand for light and love.  That’s a revolution worthy of the season.”

Join Pickett at a free monthly event, Behind the Baton, at Ocean Zen on Thursday, December 7 (4117 S National Ave) for the opportunity to meet Pickett and hear about the music that will be performed at the December 9 concert.  The meet & greet begins at 5:00 p.m. and the program will begin at 5:30 p.m.

Springfield Symphony offers special discounted tickets for Veterans and military personnel

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – The Springfield Symphony is offering special $10 tickets for any seat in Hammons Hall to any Veteran, active duty or retired military personnel and a spouse/guest at its Salute to Veterans Pops concert on Saturday, November 11 at 7:30 p.m. at the Juanita K. Hammons Hall for the Performing Arts. Special tickets can only be purchased in person or by phone at the Hammons Hall box office.

“Our Veterans Day concert this year is going to be a very moving and truly fascinating tribute to Missourians who volunteered and fought in World War I,” said Kyle Wiley Pickett, music director/conductor for the Springfield Symphony. “We will be playing popular music that was used to stir up support of the Great War like Over There, as well as patriotic songs and pieces that have been used in movies about war, including the always popular Nimrod from Elgar’s Enigma Variations and the moving Adagio by Albinoni.”

Pre-concert music will begin at 7 p.m. Tickets are currently on sale at the Juanita K. Hammons Hall box office, and can be purchased by calling (417) 836-7678 or online at www.missouristatetix.com. Ticket prices range from $17 - $36 and discounts are available for students and seniors.

“In addition to our musical selections, we will have actors onstage who will read from letters and diaries of Missourians at the frontlines of the battles in World War I,” said Pickett. “Their words tell stories of love, longing, heroism, and horror, and really make the history of World War I come to life. These were real people, with lovers and families and fears and dreams, and the fact that we are able to enter their world, nearly one hundred years after they wrote these letters, is going to make for a pretty amazing evening of story-telling. As you would expect, many tell about the grueling trench warfare and the terror of poison gas, but there are also letters that are full of humor, enthusiasm for new adventure in Europe, and jealousies of lovers back at home. It’ll be a fascinating night in honor of veterans and volunteers and we are excited to bring these stories to the stage. These letters come from an amazing online archive called “Over There: Missouri and the Great War,” put together using over 30 collections of historical documents by the Springfield-Greene County Library. It’s an incredible resource.”

Join Pickett at a free monthly event, Behind the Baton, at Ocean Zen on Thursday, November 9 (4117 S National Ave) for the opportunity to meet Pickett and hear about the music that will be performed at the November 11 concert. The meet & greet begins at 5:00 p.m. and the program will begin at 5:30 p.m.

Springfield Symphony commemorates 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – The Springfield Symphony will continue its “Revolution” theme which commemorates different historical anniversaries with the classical concert, The Reformation.  The performance will feature Mendelssohn’s Reformation Symphony as well as Pianist Gabriela Martinez on Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 20 on Saturday, October 14 at 7:30 p.m. at the Juanita K. Hammons Hall for the Performing Arts. 

“We are using our October concert as a chance to reflect on the 500th anniversary of the beginning of the Protestant Reformation,” said Kyle Wiley Pickett music director/conductor for the Springfield Symphony.  “It is almost impossible to overstate the cultural significance of the Reformation. The Reformation and its new church ushered in a new era of liturgical music, during which a composer named Johann Sebastian Bach rose to prominence. Bach almost single-handedly drove the beginning of Western music as we know it. Without Bach, there is no Beethoven. Without Beethoven, there are no Beatles. The beginning of the Reformation marks one of the largest turning points in all of Western culture and Mendelssohn's Reformation Symphony is an exciting and dramatic tribute to Bach and the Reformation as an important historical event.”

Pickett will deliver a pre-concert talk at 6:30 p.m. from the stage and pre-concert music will begin at 7 p.m.  Tickets are currently on sale at the Juanita K. Hammons Hall box office, and can be purchased by calling (417) 836-7678 or online at www.missouristatetix.com.  Ticket prices range from $17 - $33 and discounts are available for students and seniors.

Join Pickett at a free monthly event, Behind the Baton, at Ocean Zen on Thursday, October 12 (4117 S National Ave) for the opportunity to meet Pickett and the featured soloist and hear about the music that will be performed at the October 14 concert.  The meet & greet begins at 5:00 p.m. and the program will begin at 5:30 p.m.

All in all, we're going to have a fantastic opening to our season of Revolutionary music!”

Springfield Symphony bassist celebrates 65 years with the orchestra

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. - Springfield Symphony bassist, Tommy Zongker will celebrate 65 years with the Springfield Symphony Orchestra during the 2017-18 season.  This milestone marks the longest musician tenure with the orchestra throughout its 83 year history.   

“It’s been a wonderful experience, and it’s just gone by so fast,” exclaimed Tommy Zongker.  Zongker has played under the baton of all but one of eight conductors of the Springfield Symphony.  “I started out as a member of the stage crew of the organization when I was in 10th grade at Springfield Senior High and one day David Blumenthal (the second conductor of the Symphony) asked me if I wanted to play Bass.  So I did!” 

Alongside his long tenure at the Springfield Symphony, Zongker was a pharmacist in Springfield for 50 years.  Chuckling to himself, he recalled, “There might have been few times I was almost late to rehearsal because I would try to shut the pharmacy down a little early so I could zip on over to performance hall.”

Zongker along with the rest of the orchestra will play the first concert of the 2017-18 season, Russian Revolution, on September 16, 2017 at Juanita K. Hammons Hall for the Performing Arts.  Zongker is available for any interviews or questions.  Please feel free to call the Symphony office at (417) 864-6683 to set-up an interview time.

Springfield Symphony announces 2017-2018 subscription season

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – The Springfield Symphony will take on some of history’s biggest moments during its 2017-2018 subscription season entitled Revolution. The nine concert subscription series will be performed at Juanita K. Hammons Hall for the Performing Arts starting on September 16, 2017 and will run through May 12, 2018.

“Our 2017-18 season will be another year of thrilling music and exciting concerts,” said Kyle Wiley Pickett, music director/conductor for the Springfield Symphony. “We chose the theme of Revolution because it offers such terrific and dramatic musical repertoire, and it gives us the opportunity to take a look at some of history's biggest moments through a musical lens. Music played an important part in some of history's revolutions, and new music emerged from revolutions as worlds changed and cultures shifted. We're talking about big historical moments, and this will be a year of big music--powerful and dramatic and world-changing--and a year of remembering the revolutionaries who rose up and made history.”

Season tickets are currently on sale at the Springfield Symphony office (411 N. Sherman Pkwy). Patrons can either stop in the Symphony office or call the office at 417-864-6683 to purchase season tickets. The renewal deadline for current season ticket subscribers is Friday, June 30, 2017.

“These are exciting pieces to conduct, listen to, and play, and I think everyone's going to be thrilled with the line-up,” said Pickett. “From Shostakovich’s stormy 5th Symphony to Tchaikovsky's gorgeous "Sleeping Beauty" to musical selections from Broadway's hottest ticket, "Hamilton," it's going to be an incredible year. Don't miss your shot to join the revolution!”
