The Evolution of the Symphony

Mondays 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM

The symphonic form has evolved over the last 300 years, yet remains a viable genre through which composers can express what is in their hearts and minds. Please join musician David Howard in exploring, through words and musical excerpts, this remarkable evolution, from the symphonies of Joseph Haydn to those of Dmitri Shostakovitch.

David Howard, cellist, was a member of the National Symphony Orchestra for 41 years. He holds two Masters Degrees, in Performance and in Education. In 2012 he retired to Frederick, where he maintains a teaching studio in his home and performs with the Frederick Symphony.
