An afternoon of musical passion, featuring Taikovsky’s much-loved Romeo & Juliet Overture-Fantasy, Mendelssohn’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Corigliano's The Red Violin, Puccini's love arias and duets of Verdi & Puccini and more...   Hailed as a rising star with a "million-volt smile" and a "formidable set of fingers" (Dallas Morning News),2013 DeHaan Classical Fellow of the American Pianists Association Sean Chen joins us for a celebration of one of the most influential of all classical composers—Ludwig Van Beethoven—performing Beethoven’s evocative and lyrical Piano Concerto No. 2. Enjoy the enchanting Symphony No. 6 ‘Pastoral,’ perhaps the most beloved of all Beethoven's symphonies, and the legendary Second Symphony.  

A dramatic tribute to three incomparable composers, whose masterworks encompass the full spectrum of human emotion—one of the wonders of the classical repertoire. With its soaring crescendos, Brahms’ Symphony No. 1 promises to transport and inspire you, and Dvorák’s lively Slavonic Dances are among his most memorable works. Filled with fireworks like the Northern Lights, Sibelius’ virtuostic Concerto for Violin will be masterfully performed by Alexi Kenney, Yehudi Menuhin International Violin Competition Winner.


For our grand finale weekend, Guest Conductor James Feddeck returns to lead The Symphony & Chorus in what has been called “a conductor’s dream come true.” Featuring four world-class vocalists, including Soprano Alexandra Loutsion, Mezzo-Soprano Margaret Mezzacarpa, Tenor Issachah Savage, and Baritone Lester Lynch, plus the huge sound of 150 musicians on The Lensic stage, Verdi’s powerful and majestic Requiem is sure to be unforgettable.
