The Dubuque Symphony Orchestra presents the second in its Classics series: Resonate with Unity March 26-27 at Five Flags Theater, downtown Dubuque.
“Cellist Tony Rymer is a rising star in the world of classical music. We are thrilled to welcome him to Dubuque to perform the gorgeous cello concerto by Robert Schumann,” states Music Director and Conductor William Intriligator. “Chinese-American composer Chen Yi is quite established as a very important living composer, and her piece Shuo for string orchestra is very beautiful and moving, reflecting a mix of traditions of Eastern and Western music. And Felix Mendelssohn’s youthful sojourn to Italy inspired one of his greatest works, the “Italian” Symphony. This music is full of joy and vitality—much like Mozart’s bubbly overture which opens the program.”
The concerts will be held at 7:30 pm Saturday, March 26 and 2:00 pm Sunday, March 27 at Five Flags Theater, downtown Dubuque.
