A sparkling diamond anniversary opener heralds MSO's 75th season with a blast -- from at least 25 brass players joining the orchestra onstage in Janáček's powerful "Sinfonietta".  What follows are blasts from the past in stellar selections from our first concert in 1944.  To close, young violinist William Hagen dazzles in Tchaikovsky's beloved concerto.

Cash bar in the lobby prior to the concert and at intermission.

Pre-concert lecture by Dr. Timothy Coker on the mezzanine level, 6:45-7:15pm.
