A series of guest conductors will lead the Hilton Head Symphony Orchestra's 30th season. The first concert, "Opening Night," will be at 8 p.m. Monday at the First Presbyterian Church under the baton of principal guest conductor John Morris Russell with soloist Bella Hristova.
The season opener includes the Antonin Dvorak favorite, "Symphony No. 8," Jean Sibelius' challenging and masterful "Violin Concerto," and the Ludwig van Beethoven "Egmont" overture that depicts the triumph of freedom over tyranny.
There will be nine concerts this season; four directed by Russell and five with nationally and internationally known guest conductors. This month, Russell begins his full-time tenure with the Cincinnati POPS Orchestra. He is currently celebrating his 10th year as music director of the Windsor Orchestra in Ontario, Canada.
Bulgarian violinist Bella Hristova has been lauded for her commanding stage presence, impressive power and control, and expressive nuance.
The church is at 540 William Hilton Parkway. Concert tickets are $20, $30 and $40.
