MUSIC DIRECTOR FINALIST REI HOTODA, GUEST CONDUCTOR ANGELO XIANG YU, VIOLIN
Korngold’s captivating Violin Concerto is an intoxicating combination of Hollywood accessibility, rigorous virtuosity, and unabashed romanticism. Shostakovich’s Eighth Symphony, considered one of the composer’s finest, is a requiem for the millions who suffered and died during WWII and under the Stalinist regime.
Meet the Music Director Finalist at a Q&A one hour and 15 minutes before each performance! This will be followed by a pre-concert talk with the Maestro Hotoda and guest artist Angelo Xiang Yu. Come early to learn more about the music you will hear. This talk is free to all ticketholders.
