Maestro Barry Tuckwell's farewell season as music director and conductor of Maryland Symphony Orchestra will be filled with favorites.
Each program will contain music that audience members know and enjoy, Tuckwell said during a recent press conference to announce the orchestra's 1997-98 schedule.
Tuckwell reviewed the programs from the past 15 seasons and considered comments from audience members before choosing the works for the 16th season.
"Each one is a favorite to me," Tuckwell said.
Performances at The Maryland Theatre in Hagerstown will begin Saturday, Oct. 18, and Sunday, Oct. 19, with a program that includes "Candide Overture," "Adagio for Strings," "Appalachian Spring," "The Sorcerer's Apprentice," "Bacchanale from `Samson and Delilah' " and "Bolero."
