The King Center’s resident orchestra, the Brevard Symphony is led by Music Director Christopher Confessore, who has spent more than 28 years at the helm. The 2022-23 season, titled “Bright Lights, Big Music,” is the first in more than two years to have no COVID regulations for musicians or audience requirements. Something Maestro Confessore notes inspired the theme. “We are thrilled to be back in BIG this season! Sharing space with our audience during concerts is such an electric and unrepeatable experience, and we are thrilled to be back with the best audiences in our King Center home and performing for another season at the beautiful L3Harris Technologies Theater. . We really wanted to bring that great energy to the stage with a slate of gigs that celebrate the vastness of music’s reach and the impact it has on everything we do.
Song & Danceoffers “an opening night program that will have you toe tapping and humming. Popular favorites by Bizet, Falla, Copland, Sondheim and Puccini are featured, along with a guest appearance from the Brevard Community Chorus singing music by Brahms. Music fans of all ages can enjoy BSO concerts, as Maestro Confessore is known for including contemporary favorites (like the music of Stephen Sondheim) in many of their performances throughout the year. Mr. Confessore is also a POPS conductor for the Alabama Symphony Orchestra, as well as the must-see Candlelight Processional at EPCOT. The annual free BSO Symphony under the stars concert in partnership with the City of Cocoa featured music from Disney classics like The Incredibles sprinkled between patriotic favorites. Later this season, the February concert comedy tonight will present the music of The pink Pantherfrom Sondheim comedy tonightand the music of Calm your enthusiasmHBO’s recent hit series from Seinfeld designer Larry David.
