The concert is entitled Summer Classics Special Concert: Ward Stare Conducts Mozart & Beethoven. Stare discussed the opportunity to conduct in his hometown Wednesday on News 8 at Noon.
Stare made his RPO conducting debut in February. He's looking forward to Friday's concert. "It's going to be a great program," he said. "The last time I was here we did some really interesting pieces that maybe were a little less familiar and this time we're going to do Beethoven, Mozart and Wagner, so it's a great opportunity for someone who maybe has been interested in the RPO but hasn't quite been able to dive in yet to come check out some great music."
