HAGERSTOWN - Maryland Symphony Orchestra Music Director Elizabeth Schulze welcomed the nearly full-house audience to The Maryland Theatre on a "glorious" spring Sunday. What better way to celebrate the season than with the music the orchestra would present in the final concert of its 25th season, she asked. The afternoon was a celebration of life, love and 25 years of the Maryland Symphony Orchestra. Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky's Serenade for Strings, which Schulze said the composer was in love with, drew an enthusiastic response from the audience, which applauded after the first movement.
