From Erie Philharmonic French Horn, Emily Shelley

Ever wonder what concerts one of our musicians would pick to put in their own subscription? Check out what Emily Shelley, one of our French Horns, would pick for her very own Compose Your Own subscription!


1812 Overture and Pops Favorites

September 22

This concert will be really fun and is bound to bring back a lot of memories from my childhood. These classic pop tunes were featured everywhere!


Marc-André Hamelin

October 6

I can never resist the rich, lush piano music of Rachmaninoff, and I can't wait to hear Marc-André Hamlin play it (not just because he's Canadian!)


Copland’s Third

January 26

Classic Americana concert (except for Beethoven haha)! Both the Copland (pictured) and Adams are great pieces, and if you like fast, loud music, then A Short Ride in a Fast Machine is right up your alley. More wood block, anyone?


Wizard of Oz

February 9 & 10

Who could say no to this?


Symphonie Fantastique

March 9

Symphonie Fantastique. Who can resist that haunting chord progression in the 5th movement? Horror movies have used this piece of music because it is so scary, I wouldn't want to miss this hair-raising moment!
