What's interesting about this concert...
The 2023 Young Artist performs their piano concerto selection with JSO upon winning our Young Artist Competition. Additionally, they perform a solo recital for patrons offering you a chance to meet our distinguished guest.
The Eighth Symphony by Dvořák is sheer joy. The harmony of moods, vivid orchestration, and lively rhythms were inspired by nature and walks the composer would take by streams and in forests.
Dvořák often relied on Czech culture and scenery for inspiration. In this symphony, he uses the orchestra to depict bird calls, a passing storm, rousing folk dances, and gentle breezes.
Symphony No. 8
