Two composers separated by continents and time meet in this engaging performance. Amy Beach’s Symphony No. 2 incorporates music of England, Ireland, and Scotland into the first symphony written and published by an American woman composer.

Beethoven’s Violin Concerto in D Major is as timeless as it is technically difficult. The award-winning violinist, Minami Yoshida, joins the GSO for her US debut. Yoshida was a major prize winner at the Montreal and Sibelius competitions and has performed with the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra, Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra, Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal, Tokyo Symphony Orchestra, and others.

Individual and season tickets will be on sale soon!
