Brahms' Symphony No. 1

You’ll feel like you’ve gone to New York City with the strutting strings, powerful brass, and wicked rhythms in Bernstein’s opening Three Dance Episodesfrom On the Town! Concertmaster Susanna Perry Gilmore (“Luminous and hypnotic.” – The Omaha World-Herald) will then whisk you off to Scotland with Bruch’s Scottish Fantasy, with romantic and popular tunes that spin out beautiful songs and virtuosic showcases. Brahms makes his symphonic debut with the thunderous, resounding Symphony No. 1, a stormy work that gives way to a radiant, triumphant finale.

Join us for a pre-concert lecture at 6:45 p.m. that will guide you step-by-step through the evening’s program.
