    SET YOUR IMAGINATION FREE    
    ADVANCE TICKET SALES HAVE ENDED, BUT TICKETS WILL BE AVAILABLE AT THE DOOR STARTING AT 2:45 PM MAY 19!   Immerse yourself in the powerful visions of three acclaimed composers of different eras. Bohemian Antonin Dvorak's 1889 Symphony 8 evokes the pastoral beauty of the highland forest, with birdsong and folk dance. American Ulysses Kay's 1963 Fantasy Variations blends lush melodies with modern atonality to build a simple musical theme to a triumphant climax. Peter Tchaikovsky wrote his 1878 Violin Concerto to showcase the skills of virtuoso violinists, and you will hear the concerto's first movement performed brilliantly by Neal Eisfeldt, the winner of our 2024 solo contest for high school musicians. Neal is a freshman at Stevenson High School in Lincolnshire.

    EMBRACE THE PASSION    
    Venture with us into a steamy world of smugglers, bullfighters, and obsessive lovers in a Spanish village. We'll leave it to you to decide who's the villain and who's the victim as our orchestra and chorus perform popular songs from Georges Bizet's Carmen opera, including bullfighter Escamillo's Toreador Song and the title character's sultry Habanera. Joining us as soloists are tenor Geoffrey Agpalo, soprano Olga Bojovic, baritone Matthew Carroll, and alto Erika Morrison.
