SOB symphony concerts

SOB symphony concerts

SOB symphony concerts are organized by the orchestra itself. Their programmes are decided by the principal conductor and the artistic director. Internationally renowned artistes perform as guest soloists, and the orchestra plays under the direction of its principal conductor or inspiring guest conductors. Until the re-opening of the Stadtcasino in 2020/21, the SOB symphony concerts are held in the Basler Münster, Theater Basel und Musical Theater Basel.

SOB symphony concert

Thursday, 07. May

07:30 PM

6.30pm: Introduction to the concert (in German) at the Musical Theater (1st floor, not accessible for wheelchairs)

Virtually no other place epitomises the American dream “of plate washer to millionaire” more strongly than Hollywood. With the merger of films and musicals, a golden age began in Los Angeles in the 1920s. In the last few years, British conductor John Wilson has rescued and painstakingly restored numerous scores from this phase of American film history, which lasted until 1960. However, during this concert he will not take his usual place behind the baton of his world-renowned John Wilson orchestra, with whom he guest stars regularly during the BBC Proms, but instead get the Sinfonieorchester Basel “swinging”. Besides the melodies from famous film classics such as Gone with the Wind, Psycho and Ben Hur Tom and Jerry also needs to take pride of place.
