Mother’s Day concert May 11 to be final of Fallbrook Music Society season

FALLBROOK – Fallbrook Music Society’s 37th concert season will come to a resounding close on Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 11, when esteemed Redlands Symphony conductor Dr. Jon Robertson gives a rare personal performance in a lush program to be heard only in Fallbrook.

“We are extraordinarily fortunate to have Maestro Robertson so engaged with Fallbrook Music Society,” said Ann Murray, the society’s executive director. “He is someone who is recognized for his great artistry throughout the country and the region, and he has great love for our community.” Robertson (piano and harpsichord) will be joined by Redlands Symphony’s concertmaster Jeanne Skrocki and principal cellist Kyle Champion for this moving performance of chamber music, along with members of the Redlands Symphony string section.

Concert-goers will be in for a rare treat, as this program features compositions from three of the finest and most well-known classical music composers of all time: Johann Sebastian Bach, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Felix Mendelssohn.

One of the best orchestral compositions of the Baroque era, Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 3; Mozart’s brilliant Piano Trio No. 5 in C Major, and Mendelssohn’s emotionally stirring Piano Trio are deeply emotional selections that are certain to please all in attendance.

Robertson is now in his 26th season as music director and conductor or the Redlands Symphony Orchestra.

Fallbrook Music Society urges patrons to arrive at the theater at 2 p.m. on concert day, for a sneak preview of the exciting new 2014-2015 season, which has several surprises in store.

There will be a conductor’s preview at 2:40 p.m., and the concert will begin at 3 p.m. It will be held in the Bob Burton Center for the Performing Arts, 2400 S. Stage Coach Lane, Fallbrook.

Tickets are available online at www.fallbrookmusicsociety.org or by calling (760) 451-8644.
