Celtic Connections
The River City Brass performs music from Riverdance, When Irish Eyes are Smiling, Danny Boy, and favorites from those other Celtic nations: Scotland, Wales and ... Kentucky?!? They'll be well served with Scotland the Brave, Men of Harlech, and bluegrass. There will be Irish dancers, bagpipers, and Music Director James Gourlay won't be the only one wearing a kilt.

Young Frankenstein


PBT Premieres
PBT presents three imaginative masterworks by world-renowned choreographers Jiřί Kylian, Mark Morris and Jerome Robbins.

Stravinsky’s Firebird
Finnish composer Einojuhani Rautavaara recorded the songs of Arctic birds, which became the soloists in his fascinating Concerto for Birds and Orchestra, Cantus Arcticus. A bird of a different feather, Stravinsky's The Firebird ballet made its young composer an international sensation. Manfred Honeck conducts the 1919 Firebird suite. The concert begins with Concertmaster Noah Bendix-Balgley and Principal Violist Randolph Kelly in Mozart's elegant Sinfonia Concertante.
