Delaware Symphony Orchestra kicks off new season

The Delaware Symphony Orchestra kicks off another season Friday and this weekend, but with a twist due to illness.


Russian pianist Vassily Primakov has taken ill.  He was scheduled to perform as he did during a tribute to philanthropists Tatiana and Gerret Copeland. The Copeland tribute two weeks ago.  The orchestra will once again be led by Music Director David Amado.

It was supposed to perform Rachmaninov’s Piano Concerto No. 3 with Primakov.  That won’t happen, according to a DSO spokesperson.  Instead the orchestra will play Rachmaninov’s Vocalise and Richard Strauss’s Also sprach Zarathustra as originally scheduled.

Both the Friday and Saturday concerts begin at 8.  You can get more information at 302-652-5577 or log on to
