Minor Matters

The works on this program may all be in the Minor mode, but they are not minor matters! OPO Principal Guest Conductor Chelsea Gallo leads the Philharmonic in captivating musical offerings. To wit, acclaimed Pianist Washington Garcia solos in Mozart’s Concerto, whose turbulent mood engages with dark beauty and intensity. Schubert’s “Unfinished” Symphony presents us with a possibly unanswerable question: if its two movements are so beautifully imagined and brilliantly executed, leading to the final satisfying measures, how can it be considered anything but gloriously “finished”? Opening the concert, Mendelssohn sets waves a-rollin’ in Fingal’s Cave, the eerie concert overture inspired by his visit to Scotland.

Please note: When purchasing tickets online the only option will be to “Hold at Box Office”. There is no need to pick anything up, but instead you will be checked off a master list upon entry.
