Trip to the Country

Maria Fuller, conductor
Veronique Mathieu, violin
One last musical adventure to end our season!
After a year of musical travel, we find ourselves in need of some time to slow down and literally smell the roses. We're taking a trip to the country with two iconic musical idyllic adventures.
Violinist Veronique Mathieu returns to the SSO to perform Ralph Vaughan Williams' hauntingly beautiful Lark Ascending - a performance that will surely be a highlight of our 90th season.
Conductor Maria Fuller leads the SSO through Beethoven's Pastoral Symphony. This masterwork captures the composer's love of a walk through the country, filled with a shepherd's pipe, birds singing, streams flowing, and an epic thunderstorm!
Stroll through the trees, explore the wide-open prairie, and clear your mind with this uplifting performance of two of the greatest pieces ever written.
