The second Music Director Finalist, Adam Boyles, comes to Charlottesville on February 18 and 19 to lead the orchestra in two Scandinavian masterworks. Sibelius’s thrilling Violin Concerto is celebrated for its brooding Nordic character, while Nielsen’s Fourth Symphony, “Inextinguishable,” refers to an inherently optimistic will to live. Featuring Bella Hristova, violin.
The Symphony is back at the Virginia Discovery Museum on Saturday, February 4 at 10:30am for another "Meet the Symphony Musician" program! Join I-Jen Fang, Principal Timpani and Percussion, for a demonstration of percussion instruments and a musical reading of a children's story. After the story, attendees will be able to create their own music on instruments from the percussion family! Free with museum admission.
