Program

Haydn: Symphony No. 96
A coy start to a flashy end; a chandelier fell during its premiere!

David Diamond: Romeo and Juliet
Full of pathos and beauty; The overture alone conveys the drama of the entire play.

Stravinsky: Pulcinella
Witty and rollicking; Pulcinella is a man chased by all the girls…and their jilted boyfriends.
