Plus, one of our Music Director’s favorite composers, Sarah Kirkland Snider, will join us in Wheeling for this performance of her piece Something for the Dark. This season-finale event will begin with the bombastic Festive Overture by Dimitri Shostakovich. Next, emerging superstar Maxim Lando will be featured on the piano in the monumental Piano Concerto no. 1 by Tchaikovsky. The second half will begin with Snider’s work, filled with beautiful depths of sounds and inspired by the poet Philip Levine. Finally, you will experience Ravel’s transporting Suite no. 2 from Daphnis and Chloe, a shimmering portrait of young love that ends in overwhelming fashion—a perfect end to our year.
