  • Ludwig Van BeethovenSymphony no.8

According to Grammy-winning American composer Jessie Montgomery, “Strum draws on American folk idioms and the spirit of dance and movement. The piece has a kind of narrative that begins with fleeting nostalgia and transforms into ecstatic celebration.” Samuel Barber, born in West Chester PA in 1910, wrote one of the great American violin concertos. Finishing the concert is Beethoven’s 8th symphony, a piece full of humor, élan, and a light-hearted sparkle. Tickets include a pre-concert talk with Music Director, Michael Hall, the full show, as well as a post-concert Q&A with the conductor, soloist, and select musicians.
