2024-2025 Main Stage Series

The PSO opens its 27th season with two musical portraits that reflect the stark contrasts of human experience. Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 10 in E minor, Op. 93 is both a brutal musical depiction of the tyranny and oppression experienced under Stalin, and a portrait of the people who were overshadowed by him, even in death. Alternatively, Copland’s Lincoln Portrait is the work of admiration and celebration of the great emancipator. Written for orchestra and narrator, the piece incorporates Lincoln’s own words and offers the listener a unique summary of our country’s aspirations.
