*Michael Schacter’s Five – Six – Seven – Eight
Explore the whole world in just eight minutes! This clever, toe-tapping piece quotes every musical style from Baroque through Klezmer and New Orleans’ Jazz.

Uplifting, charming, youthful, and vivacious – this woodwind feature is sure to leave a smile on your face.

*Paul Dukas’s Fanfare to La Peri
A regal fanfare that creates an air of excitement and anticipation, this short piece shines a spotlight on our brass section.

*Max Bruch’s Violin Concerto No. 1 in G minor (3rd Movement)
Features the grand prize winner of our 2018 Youth Concerto Competition, Phillip Hammond as soloist on what is arguably the most popular violin concerto ever written.

*Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 6 – Pathétique
“I have put my whole soul into this work…It is the best thing I ever composed or shall compose.” Tchaikovsky’s final symphony is truly a masterpiece, full of grand hopes and deepest despair. It changed symphonic music forever. What will its impact be on you?
