Join the MSO on a journey showcasing local talent. We begin with composer Shaka Marko’s Beethoven in Kenya, a piece which intersperses thematic material from Beethoven with the dance rhythms of Marko’s native Nairobi. Baritone Tyrone Hayes sings Mahler’s Songs of a Wayfarer, a setting of the composer’s own poetry describing a youthful experience with nature and love. The evening concludes with a performance of Brahms’s radiant Second Symphony.

Explore sounds inspired by Spain with the MSO! Beethoven’s Overture to Egmont tells the tragic and heroic story of a nobleman who, as a martyr, inspired a national uprising that contributed to Dutch independence. Rimsky-Korsakov’s orchestral showpiece Capriccio Espagnol features virtuosic displays of Spanish flare, and Mexican composer Arturo Marquez presents a fiery conclusion with his Danzon No. 2! This will also be the first concerto performance for our new Cello Fellow, Jiaoyang Xu.
