Augusta Symphony brings “Revolution” and “Passion” to the stage

The versatility of Augusta Symphony will be on full display this month with a pair of concerts that entertain with both fresh energy and respectful tradition.

On Thursday, March 12, the symphony will present “Revolution: The Music of the Beatles.” The concert will take the audience on a musical journey as top vocalists and musicians and the symphony perform favorites such as “Ticket to Ride,” “Penny Lane,” “Hey Jude” and more. The Beatles will come to life with music arrangements transcribed from the original master recordings at Abbey Road.

On Saturday, March 28, violinist Guillermo Figueroa will appear with the symphony in its “Passion” concert. Also renowned as a conductor, violist and concertmaster, Figueroa is the principal conductor of Santa Fe Symphony Orchestra & Chorus.

The concert will include Águila’s Violin Concerto and Salon Buenos Aires. This year the symphony is performing premiere recordings of four of Águila’s works, which are full of Latin rhythms, beautiful melodies and raw power. The symphony also will perform Beethoven’s Egmont Overture and Bizet’s Suite from Carmen.

Both concerts begin at 7:30 p.m. at Miller Theater. Tickets are $38 – $100 for “Revolution” and $22 – $69 for “Passion.” For more information, visit augustasymphony.com.
