Rejoicing in the 250th Anniversary of Beethoven’s birth we’ll open the program with Leonore Overture No. 3. This awe-inspiring symphonic work holds grand structure and brings the brilliance of Beethoven to the concert hall.
The presence of Jorge Federico Osorio is sure to enhance our concert program with colorful artistry as he performs R. Schumann’s Piano Concerto. Osorio has received international acclaim as the recipient of several prizes and awards – not only does he possess a wide variety of repertoire, but his ability to compel the audience with his execution of a work so rich in invention will serve as a true testament of his deep passion.

This program opens with Samuel Barber’s Medea’s Meditation and Dance of Vengeance.
As the program expands we’ll hear from a young artist whose technique has been described by the Philadelphia Inquirer as “ poised and monstrously talented.” Benjamin Beilman brings his passionate performance to a Violin Concerto by Higdon; a work awarded the 2010 Pulitzer Prize for Music and packed with dialogue between the violin and the orchestra.
The final piece, Prokofiev’s Symphony No. 5 remains one of the composer’s most popular works. The emotional depth of the piece explores the “spirit of man” with a quality that is both uplifting and encouraging.
