Mozart's Symphony #40
In his PSO debut, England's Michael Francis conducts Mozart's Symphony #40 is easily one of the most recognizable and popular pieces of classical music. Christian Tetzlaff also debuts with the PSO in Dvořák’s Violin Concerto. Like "The Moldau," "Sárka" is one of six movements from Smetana's beloved Má vlast or “My Country.” Janáček’s symphonic rhapsody orchestrates the famed story of Taras Bulba, his sons and their journeys in the Ukraine.

Becky's New Car
By Steven Dietz, directed by Kim Martin. Becky Foster is caught in middle age, middle management and in a middling marriage—with no prospects for change on the horizon. Then one night a socially inept and grief-struck millionaire stumbles into the car dealership where Becky works. Becky is offered nothing short of a new life…and the audience is offered a chance to ride shotgun in a way that most plays wouldn't dare. Becky's New Car is a thoroughly original comedy with serious overtones, a devious and delightful romp down the road not taken.
