The program begins with Timo Andres’ thought-provoking Everything Happens So Much and features Mozart’s Twelfth Piano Concerto, full of lyricism and serenity, performed by acclaimed pianist Jeremy Denk.

Florence Price, the first female African American composer to have a composition performed by a major orchestra, crafted her First Symphony with inspiration from spiritual melodies, folk song and church music. The Phoenix Symphony, featuring Valley favorite Giora Schmidt on violin, is honored to present these unique contributions of Piazzolla and Price.

The work is paired with Brahms’ Third Symphony, a dramatic struggle between major and minor. Compared to Brahms’ previous symphonies, his Third Symphony is considered the most artistically perfect. Don’t miss this program featuring your Phoenix Symphony alongside The Phoenix Symphony Chorus.
