Pensacola Symphony Orchestra presents Awakenings, a concert celebrating the vibrant culture, rich historic roots, beautiful beaches and thriving downtown of Pensacola through stunning imagery and moving music.

The concert will feature Pensacola: Then & Now, a stunning sensory experience as pictures from Pensacola’s celebrated past and present are projected just above the orchestra to create a visual concerto choreographed to the music of American Composer Joseph Curiale’s vivid piece, Awakening. Curated by multimedia artist Nicholas Bardonnay of Los-Angeles-based Westwater Arts, Pensacola: Then & Now features images from the University of West Florida Historic Trust and images submitted by current Pensacola residents. This celebration of our national spirit continues with images of our national parks featuring Aaron Copland’s music from The Tender Land and an all-orchestral finale with Dvořák’s “New World Symphony.”
