The Naples Philharmonic Masterworks series opens the 2023-24 season with a spectacular display of musical prowess. Popular guest conductor Lee Mills returns to conduct the orchestra in an inspiring program of musical masterpieces, opening with Sarah Gibson’s innovative warp & weft. Piano virtuosa Natasha Paremski also joins the orchestra to perform Rachmaninoff’s beloved Rhapsody on a Theme by Paganini, a familiar piece favored by numerous film and television composers. The inaugural Masterworks program of the season closes with Beethoven’s revolutionary Eroica Symphony, a symphonic epic of such grand proportions that it forever changed the limits of what a symphony could be.
