The Tuscarawas Philharmonic opens its “Intermezzo” season with a program of light classics to celebrate the Labor Day holiday weekend. Why “Intermezzo?” By definition, an intermezzo is a short composition of light character introduced between main divisions of a larger musical work. This season is just that – a smaller, lighter, diverse, and educational bridge between the orchestra’s past performances and postponed milestone 85th season.

Tuscarawas Philharmonic Intermezzo invites patrons to a free online concert over the Labor Day weekend (September 5th & 6th), which can be viewed on our website and our Facebook page. Maestro Eric Benjamin will lead the socially distanced eleven-piece orchestra (proving good things DO come in small packages!) in the performance of Scott Joplin’s “The Easy Winners,” “Maple Leaf Rag,” and Pietro Mascagni’s “Intermezzo Sinfonico.”

In addition, Tuscarawas Philharmonic will partner with Tuscarawas County music teachers to provide this season’s performances as an online venue for classroom learning. This concert is made possible through generous contributions from: ProVia, The Shirley Wagner Family, Chevron, The Culpepper Family, Progressive, Dover Chemical, Steve and Becky Mastin, Tuscarawas Community Foundation, Ohio Arts Council, and Reeves Foundation.

Tuscarawas Philharmonic is a professional orchestra with both adult and children’s choruses, and summer music camps for young musicians.
