The announcement of a 2012-13 season is the first step taken by the Sacramento Philharmonic in the wake of its success raising a must-have $150,000 over a five week period that ended May 15.
Prior to raising the funds the orchestra's board of directors was contemplating outright closure or a cancelled season because of financial woes earlier this year.
The new season begins Sept. 29 with "Viva la Musica" a concert offering a wide range of music from Latin America. Americas music specialist Polly Ferman will appear as will bandoneonist JP Jofre.
The season continues Oct. 13 with "Prodigies-Beethoven." That concert will see noted young pianist Conrad Tao performing Beethoven's Piano Concerto No.1 and the orchestra performing Haydn's Symphony No. 103.
Violinst Rachel Barton Pine (pictured above) returns to the orchestra next January to perform the Violin Concerto in D minor by Sibelius. Brahms Symphony No. 4 will also be performed.
The season ends with an April 2013 performance of Mozart's Coronation Mass and other works.
All of the performances will be performed at Sacramento's Community Center Theater and conducted by Michael Morgan.
Season tickets for new buyers go on sale July 17. Single tickets on Aug. 3.
