Rachmaninoff's 2nd Symphony Performance

BREVARD COUNTY • COCOA VILLAGE, FLORIDA – While most orchestras are relaxing, the Space Coast Symphony Orchestra continues their searing Summer Series with a performance of “Rachmaninoff’s 2nd Symphony” at 7 p.m. July 21 at the Scott Center for the Performing Arts at Holy Trinity Episcopal Academy in north Melbourne.

While the second half of the program is devoted to Rachmaninoff’s passionate Symphony No. 2, Will Connell and his trombone are featured earlier in the technically demanding Concerto for Trombone and Orchestra by Henri Tomasi.

Concert goers will also delight in the Overture to the Marriage of Figaro, the musical introduction to the Mozart opera of the same name, made famous in its own right as a popular concert piece.

For Space Coast Symphony Orchestra’s energetic artistic director Aaron T. Collins, music doesn’t stop in the summertime.

“We are taking our cue from the music lovers who make up our audience,” Collins said. “They have told us how much they love the year-round concert schedule of the Space Coast Symphony. And since kids 18 and under are always free, summertime boredom can become summertime enrichment.”

Advance tickets for the performance of “Rachmaninoff’s 2nd Symphony” are priced at $20 and available at the orchestra’s website at

Several convenient local outlets are selling tickets to the concert including Ace Hardware stores in Indialantic, Cocoa Beach and Satellite Beach, Blue Sky Insurance in Cocoa Village, Tropical Realty of Suntree, Art Expressions in downtown Eau Gallie and A Floral Affair on Merritt Island.

Tickets also will be sold at the door for $25 and admission for students age 18 and under is free.

“Rachmaninoff’s 2nd Symphony” is the third of four concerts scheduled for the Space Coast Symphony Orchestra’s 2012 Summer Series.

“Call of the Champions:Music of the Olympics” in August will round out the warm weather offerings.

The Scott Center auditorium is just off the Pineda Causeway at 5625 Holy Trinity Drive in north Mebourne.
