Principal Clarinet Bharat Chandra introduces Masterworks 1: Beethoven's Eroica!
Our 75th Anniversary season gets off to a joyous start with a program featuring Beethoven’s “Eroica” Symphony, a supreme work that is by turns heroic, somber, and ecstatic. Artistic Advisor David Alan Miller leads the Orchestra in this masterpiece, which redefined the symphonic art form forever. Tessa Lark, violinist and fiddler extraordinaire, brings her flair to Michael Torke’s bluegrass-inspired violin concerto, Sky. The sparkling Overture to Die Fledermaus, Johann Strauss Jr.’s comic homage to champagne and practical jokes, opens the celebration.
