An American Premiere by an Argentine-American composer opens our season! Lalo Schifrin, known for his legendary film scores, such as Mission Impossible and Bullitt, is also a wonderful concert music composer. His mandolin concerto has been commissioned by Europe’s foremost mandolinist, Vincent Beer-Demander, whose enthralling stage presence and virtuosity will certainly transport you. As a companion piece, we will play Nicolas Mazmanian’s Mission Impossible Variations, and we will close the concert with Beethoven’s Olympian Symphony No. 7, which Wagner called “the apotheosis of dance”.

Spartan Race

October 5, 2019

HUGH T CROPPER INLET, OCEAN CITY MD

It’s time to make a splash, Spartans. We’re headed to Ocean City, Maryland for some fun in the sun at the 3-mile Ocean City Spartan Sprint.

Don’t expect much lounging around on this beach vacation. You’ll be speeding through the sand, boardwalks and streets of Ocean City, all while weaving your way through 20 of Spartan’s most famous obstacles.

The Sprint may be our shortest distance race, but it’s still a favorite among both new and returning racers. It’s the perfect distance for those looking to start their Spartan journey. The Sprint also allows returning racers a manageable distance to see how far they can push themselves. Delivering 20 obstacles over 3 mi / 5 km, you’ll never run the same race twice. Once you complete the sprint you are 1/3 on your Spartan TRIFECTA: The ultimate Spartan achievement.
