Monterey Symphony March Concerts: March 17-19, 2017

Press Release ( - SALINAS, Calif. - Feb 26, 2017 - The Monterey Symphony, under the direction of Guest Conductor Bruno Aprea (b. 1941), presents the fourth concert of the 71st Season “Shakespeare in Music.” This exhilarating and romantically themed program features works by Verdi, Berlioz, Bernstein, as well as Tchaikovsky’s romantic Romeo and Juliet overture. Leonard Bernstein’s Symphonic Dances from West Side Story will end the concert. Aprea was the Artistic and Music Director of the Palm Beach Opera from 2005-2012 and currently resides in Italy.

Bruno Aprea will guest conduct the Monterey Symphony for the fourth program of the season, featuring works by Verdi, Tchaikovsky, Berlioz, and Bernstein. The fiery overture from Giuseppe Verdi’s La Forza del Destino – or ‘the force of destiny’ – forcibly sets the tone for this musically broad and brilliant concert.

Tchaikovsky’s fantasy overture Romeo and Juliet and two movements from the dramatic symphony Romeo and Juliet by French composer Hector Berlioz, one of the greatest orchestrators of all time, highlight this performance of powerful and passionate themes.
