The EMMA 2010-2011 Concert Season concludes with the presentation of The Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra, a perennial favorite of music lovers in the St. Augustine area.  The Orchestra will perform its “Pops” program of “Song and Dance” on Saturday evening at 8:00 pm March 19 at the Flagler College Auditorium at 14 Granada St., St. Augustine.

With symphonic effects and embellishments, the program includes the “West Side Story Overture” by Leonard Bernstein, “Serenata” by Leroy Anderson, “Moon River” by Johnny Mercer & Henry Mancini, selections from “My Fair Lady” by Frederick Loewe, and “The Music Man” by Meredith Willson, as well as works by Johannes Brahms, Johann Strauss, Amilcare Ponchielli, and Glen Miller- - a wonderful menu of beloved melodies to conclude the EMMA Concert Association’s regular season. EMMA’s annual free concert and business meeting, open to all, is scheduled for Sunday May 1 and will feature the Jorge Pena String Quartet.

The guest conductor for the Jacksonville Symphony’s “Song and Dance” performance will be Matthew Kraemer, associate conductor of the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra. There he specializes in the Pops programs for that orchestra and its summer concerts. He is the recipient of the distinguished Herbert von Karajan Conducting Fellowship and the Bruno Walter Career Development Grant. His conducting residency was at the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra at the Salzburg Music Festival during the summer of 2006.
