The Southwest Michigan Symphony Orchestra presents an evening of music exploring and celebrating the strength and resilience of women. Tchaikovsky dedicated his heroic Fourth Symphony to his long-time patron Nadezhda von Meck - a savvy businesswoman who supported many artists of the time. Violist Mitsuru Kubo performs Jeremy Crosmer's viola concerto Masks: A Heroine's Tale. Crosmer wrote the five movement concerto to "draw attention to the different ways women shine in society." The program begins with a suite of excerpts from Bizet's Carmen, one of the most long standing and notable masterpieces portraying fearless courage and rebelliousness from one of music's boldest heroines.
Admission: Zone A- $35; Zone B- $20; Student- $5
