Why You'll Love This Concert

Few classical composers are as beloved as Johannes Brahms, and few of his pieces are as popular as the works on this concert!

Brahms’ Academic Festival Overture bubbles over with playfulness and humor. Originally composed for a college graduation ceremony (at which the composer was awarded an honorary doctorate), you might expect Brahms to provide a serious piece befitting the solemn occasion. Instead, he delivered an energetic romp that celebrated the less studious side of college life. Countless melodies unfold one after the other— each of them borrowed from student drinking songs that would definitely have been recognized by the graduates in the audience.

After meeting the winner of the annual University of Redlands Concerto Competition, we'll experience perhaps the greatest symphony since Beethoven's 9th. After the premiere of Brahms' Symphony No. 4, a critic said, “The longer we look into it, the more brightly the stars shine back.”

Attended the concert last Saturday evening and it was an amazing performance. Dr. Wilson as always got the absolute best from the orchestra, I am so impressed with the orchestra members and how they respond to Dr. Wilson’s direction. The soloist was stunning. So glad to be there and will see you at the next concert!
