Spring Concerts

In anticipation of our upcoming tour to Italy this season, we offer on our March concert series the symphonic masterpiece Pines of Rome, by Ottorino Respighi. This most famous of the trilogy of Rome-inspired orchestral showpieces by Respighi paints evocative images of Roman Catacombs, nightingales singing in the evening air, and remembrances of former Roman glories on the Appian Way. Our featured soloist Jeremy Tai will perform one of Prokofiev’s final works, the Sinfonia Concertante for Cello and Orchestra, commissioned and first performed by the great Russian cellist Mstislav Rostropovich one year before the composer’s death. The orchestra will also perform the wonderfully exotic and ethereal Blue Cathedral, composed by acclaimed American composer Jennifer Higdon.
