Palo Alto Philharmonic Orchestra

Palo Alto Philharmonic

December 8

If there’s a Great American Symphony, it’s Roy Harris’ rugged Third from 1938, a fitting companion for “Decoration Day” from Charles Ives’ Holiday's Symphony also on the program from an intrepid amateur community ensemble, the Palo Alto Philharmonic. The evening rounds out with Brahms’ Violin Concerto, with the intrepid local violinist Christina Mok as soloist.

David Bratman is a librarian who lives with his lawfully wedded soprano and a wall full of symphony recordings.
