Welcome to the edge of your seat. You’ll be transported to another time with Tchaikovsky’s revolutionary fifth symphony. Known for his timeless and well-loved melodies from works like Romeo and Juliet and Swan Lake, you’ll see why Tchaikovsky’s symphonies are some of the most performed around the world. One of the most sublime themes in film music, Gabriel’s Oboe from The Mission, is brought to life on our stage by our fabulous principal oboist, Torrence Welch. You’ll also hear a piece never before heard by young composer Michael Faire, the first in our series of featured compositions by living, emerging composers from our area.
