New Beginnings Postponed to May 18th
New Beginnings, originally scheduled for January 22nd, was postponed due to the spike in Covid-19 cases in Leon County. The new date is Wednesday, May 18th at 8pm in Ruby Diamond Concert Hall.


PROKOFIEV Symphony No. 1, “Classical”
HAYDN Cello Concerto No. 1
TCHAIKOVSKY Variations on a Rococo Theme
STRAVINSKY Firebird Suite

The works on this concert represent tradition, revival, and rebirth. Laying the foundation is Haydn’s Cello Concerto (1765), regarded as one of the greatest works for cello of the Classical Era. Building on this are Tchaikovsky’s beloved Rococo Variations (1877), inspired by the composer’s admiration for the great Classicist Mozart, and Prokofiev’s reinvention of the Classical style in his famous First Symphony (1917). Rounding out the evening is music by Prokofiev’s contemporary Stravinsky, whose Firebird (1910) symbolizes beauty, magic, and rebirth.
