America has been called a “melting pot” of peoples and cultures.  The RSO Concert on Saturday, February 7th, is the embodiment of this American ideal, with a Romanian cellist, a Bulgarian conductor, and a symphony that celebrates our nation in music!

Romanian born cellist Mihai Marica joins the RSO on February 7th as soloist in a performance of Tchaikovsky’s virtuosic and lyric masterpiece, Rococo Variations for Cello and Orchestra.  Having performed worldwide to critical acclaim, Mihai currently resides in New York and is a member of the Amphion String Quartet which is in residence with the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center.

In his final season with the RSO, Assistant Conductor Petko Dimitrov is a native of Bulgaria.  Petko will be on the podium for a performance of Dvorak’s all-time audience favorite, the New World Symphony.  Written while Dvorak was Director of the Nation Conservatory of Music in New York, it is a synthesis of “Old World” form and style with the spirit and energy of the “New World.”

Our country was built by a melting pot of immigrants.  The RSO celebrates this proud heritage in music with a concert sure to please all music lovers!

Come join us on Saturday, February 7th, 8:00 pm, at Ridgefield High School Auditorium!  Tickets begin at only $25, $20 for seniors.  Or better yet, enjoy the final three performances of our 50th Anniversary Season for a great rate; save 25% off of our already low subscription prices for all three performances.  Subscribe for as low as $49, $41 for seniors.   Visit our website, , or call 203-438-3889 for more information or to subscribe.
