Show up for a spectacular season opener led by Guest Conductor Guillermo Figueroa and featuring two remarkable soloists, Olga Kern and Itamar Zorman.

Verdi’s dramatic La Forza del Destino overture begins the rousing first concert of our 32nd season. Violinist Itamar Zorman, winner of the 2014 Borletti-Buitoni Trust Award as well as the 2011 Tchaikovsky International Violin Competition, will perform Tchaikovsky’s effortlessly lyrical Concerto for Violin in D Major. One of the great pianists of her generation and the first woman in over thirty years to receive the Gold Medal in the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, Olga Kern will perform Rachmaninov’s scintillating Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini. The showcase escalates to a finale with the wild Bacchanale from the Saint-Saëns opera Samson and Delilah.

FREE preview talk at 3:00 p.m. Half-price tickets available for children ages 6 to 14 with adult purchase (no children under six admitted).
