The concert features internationally renowned euphonium soloist Demondrae Thurman, in the thrilling showcase, Arban's Carnival of Venice Variations. It will also feature a gentle and beautiful new commission, composed for its world premiere this evening.
Demondrae has performed all over the world as a soloist, including Mussorgsky's "Pictures" on tour with the New York Philharmonic. In high demand as a brass and conducting clinician across the United States, Dr. Thurman is a faculty member at Samford University, and also joins Indiana University's Jacobs School of Music from this Fall.
Our season ends with Sibelius' ravishing and romantic Symphony No. 2, which he began in Italy, shortly after the premiere of his successful tone-poem, Finlandia.
As always, please join the orchestra for a sit-down post-concert dinner.
Concert entry is $20 at the door.
As always, children are admitted free!
