What's interesting about this concert...

  • Our 2023 Young Artist, Hans-Derek Yu, performs Prokofiev's Piano Concerto No. 3 with JSO upon winning our Young Artist Competition. As well, he performs a solo recital for patrons offering you a chance to meet our distinguished guest.

  • Sergei Prokofiev's Piano Concerto No. 3 is a highly virtuosic showcase concerto and a favorite of pianists, conductors, and audiences alike.

  • 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.
