    The sixth and final concert of the season, Sound Waves, will conclude in grand fashion with music by Wagner, Chopin, and Beethoven! Richard Wagner composed many brilliant overtures throughout his many German operas, including the overture from The Flying Dutchman, featured as the opening work in the season finale. Chopin's stunning Piano Concerto No. 2, Op. 21, follows, with magnificent Cuban pianist Marcos Madrigal performing the popular work, composed before Chopin completed his formal education at age 20.

    The season ends with one of the greatest compositions for the concert hall of all time: Beethoven's Symphony No. 5, Op, 67. A favorite among experienced and new audiences, musicians and conductors, the fifth endeavor in the symphony genre struck a chord for Beethoven, as he discovered his true forte – it is the "Stairway to Heaven" of Classical Music!

    Join us one hour prior to every performance for our pre-concert lectures.
