Celebrate 25 Years of Great Music with John DeMain
Our Madison Symphony Orchestra’s 93rd season continues on March 8, 9, and 10 with Orchestral Brilliance. This special concert highlights three of our own musicians as soloists: Concertmaster Naha Greenholtz with Prokofiev’s second violin concerto, Principal Clarinetist JJ Koh with Debussy’s Rhapsody for Clarinet and Orchestra, and Principal Tubist Joshua Biere with Vaughan Williams’s Concerto for Tuba and Orchestra. The program opens with Schubert’s Unfinished Symphony, and closes with Gershwin’s An American in Paris.

Known internationally as both a tremendous performer and composer, Ms. Chen will bring a program filled with transcriptions, including movements from The Planets by Holst and the last movement of Saint-Saëns’ famous Organ Symphony.
