Start your morning off right with brunch bites and a behind-the-scenes look at the process of bringing our concerts to the stage. Finishing Touches gives our audience the opportunity to observe working rehearsals; selections from the program will be rehearsed at the discretion of the conductor.

Famously written the night before its premiere performance, Mozart’s Overture to Don Giovanni foreshadows the fate that awaits an unrepentant villain. This epic warning is contrasted with two works that herald a banner of freedom—Beethoven’s grand “Emperor” Piano Concerto and Prokofiev’s Symphony No. 5. Each composer directly defies the sorrows of the wars that were raging as they composed these works—instead, celebrating the heroics of their countrymen and expressing pride in their homelands.


MOZART: Overture to Don Giovanni
BEETHOVEN: Piano Concerto No. 5 “Emperor”
