In the season’s final celebration of Beethoven’s 250th anniversary, the MSO performs the composer’s mighty “Emperor” piano concerto; expect military rhythms and explosive brilliance for the solo piano. Han-na Chang also conducts Bartók’s towering Concerto for Orchestra, which gives each section of instruments a chance to shine.
This concert weekend is sponsored by Keith Mardak & Mary Vandenberg. The Han-na Chang's performance on June 6 is sponsored by Jim and Bobbi Caraway.
The MSO Steinway piano was made possible through a generous gift from Michael & Jeanne Schmitz
