Tchaikovsky – The Tempest

Chopin – Piano Concerto No. 1

Mozart – Symphony #39

Cecile Licad takes the stage performing Chopin Piano Concerto No. 1, a lush and romantic work composed in his teens that set the stage for an illustrious career to come. Tchaikovsky’s The Tempest begins with a storm like none before, its rage clearing the seas and stage for the plot to unfold. Maestro Taddei introduces the third theme of the season with Mozart's Symphony No. 39, the first of his final Symphonies, all composed within a year of one another. Join us for our season kickoff as we celebrate the power of beginnings in our new home, the Empress Theatre!


January 28,2018

Tchaikovsky – Romeo and Juliet

Shostakovich – Piano Concerto #1

Mozart – Symphony #40

Our second concert is filled with the drama of opposing forces. Maestro Taddei showcases Mozart’s grandest Symphony, the Great G minor, one of only two minor symphonic works in the composer’s repertoire and filled with unmatched drama. Cecile Licad will stun with Shostakovich's Piano Concerto No. 1, composed in the wake of censure from the hostile Soviet government. And finally, the most famous love story ever written, Romeo & Juliet, is heartbreakingly told through Tchaikovsky’s masterful lyricism. Join us for a ride through three of the most revolutionary pieces in our composers’ careers.

Tchaikovsky – Hamlet

Saint-Saëns – Piano Concerto #1

Mozart – Symphony #41, Jupiter

Our season concludes with Cecile Licad’s performance of Saint-Saëns’s lush Piano Concerto No. 2. Mozart’s symphonic career ends spectacularly with the grand Jupiter Symphony, No. 41. Tchaikovsky’s final and most difficult tone poem, Hamlet, resolves in the drama of a monarchy come to its end. Join us in celebrating the resolution of our magnificent season!

Am I guaranteed seats I requested in the section I wanted? 

We will do our very best to accommodate season subscribers to be seated in the section of their choice by the subscriber deadline, yet with the size of the new hall, we have significantly fewer seats available. Three factors determine your place in the line when seats fitting your request come available: your subscription history, your donor history, and the date you purchase your subscription. 

When will I know if you can fulfill my request?

In early June, the seating process begins. By the end of June, we’ll be able to let you know if we can fulfill your request. 

When will I get my subscription tickets?

You will receive your subscription tickets by mail by the end of August.
