The MSO romantic summer program will feature works by Rachmaninoff and Tchaikovsky, with Queen Elisabeth Piano Competition finalist Yulia Gorenman as soloist.
Program Overview: “Tchaikovsky’s Romeo and Juliet Overture,” Rachmaninoff’s “Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini,” with award-winning pianist Yulia Gorenman, and Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 4 Op 36. Note that this concert will not include a pre-concert lecture.
