This jubilant celebration begins with the engaging concert opener Outburst by the 2023 Pulitzer Prize winner Michael Abels. From sublime melodies to incredible contrapuntal genius, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Symphony No. 41 is the epitome of the composer’s work in this genre. Following the rarely heard and lively Festival March of Antonín Dvořák, we’ll join with the musical world in celebrating the 200th anniversary of the birth of Anton Bruckner with his majestic and soul-inspiring Te Deum for soloists, chorus, and full orchestra.
