Event: Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony Concert

Saturday, November 13; starts at 8 pm

Guest conductor Eduardo Leandro brings us the most iconic symphony ever – Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony, the “Symphony of Fate” – and makes musical tradition and innovation come together with a modern piece, Jessie Montgomery’s Starburst. Add to this the exotic Violin Concerto #1 by Prokofiev, featuring solo by our own Deborah Wong, and we’ve got an evening to remember. After the pandemic months, here’s a night that brings triumph.
