CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Tomorrow is the first show of the Wyoming Symphony Orchestra’s 72 season.

“It kind of depicts this journey from darkness to light throughout the whole piece which I just thought was the perfect way to open this concert especially after the year and a half that we’ve all had. So, we’re all so excited to back on stage,” said WSO Music Director Christopher Dragon.

This year the theme of the season is Metamorphosis from Darkness to Light. The season runs from November to April and includes five concerts.

There will be three songs performed during the show including Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5. World renowned bassoonist Martin Kuuskmann will join the orchestra for one song in tomorrow’s concert.

In the days leading up to the show members of the orchestra have been in intensive rehearsal preparing.

“The hard thing that happened over COVID was it kind of stopped the progress that were making and got in the way a little bit. So having a full season again is just... I’m very excited because it means I can continue to build the orchestra and continue where we left off before COVID hit,” said Dragon.

Concerts are hosted at John F. Welsh Auditorium. The concerts will be full capacity, and masks will be required inside the venue.

Tickets can be purchased here or at the WSO office, 225 S David Street.
