With its soaring crescendos, Brahms’ Symphony No. 1 promises to transport and inspire you, and Dvorák’s lively Slavonic Dances are among his most memorable works. Filled with fireworks like the Northern Lights, Sibelius’ virtuostic Concerto for Violin will be masterfully peformed by Alexi Kenney, Yehudi Menuhin International Violin Competition Winner.
