What’s on the Program

Sibelius Valse triste
“This reminds me of the ballroom scene from The Shining. It’s sentimental and dark with a sense of nostalgia which you can hear in the music: it sounds both far away and warm.” –Bonnie Heung, viola

Heinz Karl Gruber Frankenstein!!
“What an exciting, wild, and incredibly entertaining experience! It grabbed me from the first moment.” –Zachary Silberschlag, trumpet

Haydn Symphony No. 104, London
“I love Haydn. This symphony has playful and beautiful melodies, making it both tongue-in-cheek and sincerely intimate at the same time.” –Sasha Haft, flute
