Program

Tchaikovsky • Marche Slave 
Tchaikovsky • Violin Concerto
Rachmanino • Symphony No. 3

Passionate and romantic, Russian music produced over the past 150 years forged its own path rather than follow any established rules. Composers like Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninoff were most interested in the emotions of storytelling, which compelled them to use the orchestra in unique and colorful ways. A free-wheeling spirit is sure to stir the listener’s imagination as two-time GRAMMY nominee Jennifer Frautschi joins the Symphony on violin to perform Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto.
