MIRACLE

SINGLE TICKETS AVAILABLE 10/3/22

Conductor: GRANT HARVILLE, Music Director

Featuring Joseph Haydn's Symphony No. 96 “The Miracle” – this symphony got its nickname due to the story that, during its premiere, a chandelier fell from the ceiling of the concert hall in which it was performed. It's a miracle nobody was injured! After further research, the chandelier may have actually fallen during the 1795 premiere of Haydn's Symphony No. 102. Either way, we love the artwork for this concert! 

Also featuring Caroline Shaw's  Entr’acte, and Mozart's Sinfonia Concertante for Winds.
