The Orchestras combine together to perform Tchaikovsky's exciting 1812 Overture.

 

Mr. Glymph remarked that both orchestras have enjoyed an extremely successful Summer season, with exceptional artistic achievement, audience attendance and enthusiasm. "The beautiful rendition of Classical Symphony Orchestra's Symphony No. 9 in E Minor, Op. 95 "New World" of Dvorak and Protégé Philharmonic's exciting Symphony No. 2 in D Major, Op. 73 of Brahms this season have been immensely gratifying. I'm looking forward for both of these fine ensembles to cap a fine Summer season," said Glymph.
