Our 2018–2019 season celebrates the 25th anniversary of transformation under the leadership of Music Director John DeMain. We're so excited for this season that's filled with music as momentous as the milestone it celebrates: from guest artists Emanuel Ax and James Ehnes, to a celebration of the 100th anniversary of Leonard Bernstein's birthday, to Beethoven's seventh symphony and Tchaikovsky's fifth, and so much more.

Mozart is high on everyone’s list, and Christopher O'Riley, star of NPR’s “From the Top,” will perform the prolific composer’s twenty-second piano concerto. Then “mass”—as in massive—is the monumental Glagolitic Mass of Czech composer Leos Janáček, a powerful setting of ancient Slavic texts.
