Classical Series

2017 - 2018

This season begins with Garages of the Valley, a picturesque ode to Silicon Valley dot-com titans, by Grammy-nominated Mason Bates, recently named the most performed composer of his generation. Award-winning pianist Joyce Yang plays Beethoven’s Third Piano Concerto with its breathtaking solo lines. Music Director Candidate Francesco Lecce-Chong pairs this passionate piece with Tchaikovsky’s awe-inspiring Fourth Symphony. From its terrifying brass fanfares to its painfully lonely moment with a single bassoon, it moves from tragedy to triumph.

“Her attention to detail and clarity is as impressive as her agility, balance and velocity.” 
- Washington Post
