Music Director and founder of the orchestras, Joseph Glymph has programmed for The Protégé Philharmonic: Die Meistersinger: Prelude, by Wagner; Liszt’s Mephisto Waltz; Mussorgsky’s Night on Bald Mountain; and Dvorak’s Symphony No. 9 in E Minor, Op. 95 “New World”. None of these pieces are technically easily, but the Protégé Philharmonic has tackled these challenges with remarkable gusto. I’m looking forward to performing this music with these fine young musicians,” said Maestro Glymph.
