2019-2020 Main Stage Series
Musical Storytelling from the Old and New Worlds
The last Mainstage concert of the season begins with the Tobias Picker’s pastoral Old and Lost Rivers. Tchaikovsky’s symphonic poem inspired by the Shakespearean tragedy Romeo and Juliet, and the PSO Concerto Competition winner fill out the first half. Our season concludes with Dvorak’s New World Symphony, a piece inspired by the wide open spaces in America the composer encountered during his time here, ending the season in awe and wonder!
