Attention classical music lovers! Whether you have never seen a live symphony orchestra or you're a symphony regular, you will love our upcoming event to the Tucson Symphony Orchestra (TSO). On Sun. 11/19 the CESL Activities team will go to TSO at the Tucson Music Hall to see the Grieg Piano Concerto--a three part performance of beautiful and moving orchestral music by three famous classical composers. Here are the full details:
i. Sibelius: Finlandia
ii. Grieg: Piano Concerto
iii. Tchaikovsky: Symphony No. 3, “Polish” TSO PREMIERE
Michael Stern, Music Director of the Kansas City Symphony, makes his Tucson Symphony debut conducting the TSO premiere of Tchaikovsky’s thematically rich and brilliantly orchestrated Symphony No. 3. The Grieg Piano Concerto, one of the most popular piano concertos ever written, will be performed by Drew Petersen, the 2017 winner of the American Pianists Awards. The program opens with Sibelius’ passionate anthem of independence, Finlandia, the first work by a Finnish composer to receive international acclaim.
Our special student group rate tickets are only $25/each (a 50% savings off of regular prices). Please meet in front of CESL at 1pm on Sunday, 11/19. Register soon to reserve your spot as we are taking a small group to this very special event.
