Eugene Symphony: Opening Night!
September 27 • 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm• $10 – $62
Bernstein: Three Dance Episodes from On the Town
Shostakovich: Symphony No. 5
A jazzy suite from the Broadway hit On the Town launches the Eugene Symphony’s three-month celebration of Leonard Bernstein’s centennial. As a conductor, one of Bernstein’s signature works was Shostakovich’s Fifth Symphony – an iconic 20th century masterpiece that came to represent defiance of Stalin and the oppressive Soviet government. And, for the first time, the Eugene Symphony will perform music by Ernest Bloch, who made Oregon his adopted home. His Schelomo is a passionate cello concerto based on the life of King Solomon.
