Overview

Spoleto Festival USA Orchestra
Conducted by Michelle Rofrano

What’s old is new again

Members of the Spoleto Festival USA Orchestra take the Dock Street stage to perform repertoire from the classical and neo-classical periods. This inventive chamber orchestra program, conducted by Michelle Rofrano, features Stravinsky’s “Dumbarton Oaks” Concerto in E-flat and Fanny Mendelssohn’s Overture in C, as well as work that would have been performed in 1736—when the first incarnation of the historic Dock Street Theatre was built.
