The Folsom Symphony has announced its 2012-2013 season, its ninth.
The all-volunteer orchestra will perform all of its concerts at the Three Stages performing arts complex on the campus of Folsom Lake College.
The season opens Oct. 20 with "A Heart's Jewel and Triumph," featuring Mendelssohn's Concerto in E Minor, and Tchaikovsky's "1812 Overture," as well as Schubert's Symphony No. 8 ("Unfinished").
Next up is the orchestra's annual holiday concert, "Of Joy and Fate," Dec. 15 and 16. That concert will feature a blend of classical music and holiday music, including Handel's "Hallelujah Chorus" and a traditional sing-along.
On Feb. 9, the symphony offers its Valentine's Day concert, "Love Is All You Need," which includes Beethoven's Symphony No. 6, and select works by Puccini, Verdi as well as Ravel's "Bolero."
March 23 the orchestra performs "Our Magnificent Horns," which will spotlight the orchestra's horn section. The program includes Schumann's "Konzerstuck" and Vaughan Williams' "Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis."
The orchestra offers its annual pops concert on May 18, 2013, showcasing Broadway and film score music in a program that includes violinist Dawn Harms perfoming Barber's Violin Concerto.
All performances begin at 7:30 p.m., (except for the Dec. 16 holiday concert, which starts at 2 p.m).
