The brilliant music for the story of a hero – one of Beethoven’s most popular overtures – sets the stage for an exciting evening. This opening weekend concert boasts a spellbinding star violinist, 12-year-old Amaryn Olmeda as soloist in the exceptionally popular Bruch Violin Concerto. Audiences will be thrilled by the young musician’s command of her instrument.
Beethoven’s humorous and lighthearted Symphony No. 8 brings the first weekend of orchestra concerts to a celebratory conclusion for the composer’s 250th birthday.
