NEW LONDON, Conn. - The Eastern Connecticut Symphony Orchestra (ECSO) continues its 2019-20 season, Nov. 23 at 7:30 p.m., with “Death & Transfiguration”, at the Garde Arts Center in New London. The Eastern Connecticut Symphony Chorus will join the ECSO for two works on the first half: Queen’s iconic prog-rock operetta “Bohemian Rhapsody” and New London composer, Charles Frink’s “John Henry.” Richard Strauss’ tone poem, “Death and Transfiguration” will highlight the orchestra and provide the thematic namesake for this concert. The second half features the ECSO 2019 Instrumental Competition winner, violinist Hannah Cho, making her ECSO debut with Brahms’ Violin Concerto. This concert is sponsored by ASA Environmental Products, Inc. and Firefly Farms, LLC.
