A Memo from the Maestro: We’re off to Paris, and the Romantic Age, for our debut concert of the season at the Viterbo Fine Arts Center. Following the LSO’s knockout performance of the Hector Berlioz Symphonie fantastique, we celebrate his next great work from the 1830s, his passionate rendering of Shakespeare’s timeless tale. Back from her cancelled engagement due to COVID, American pianist Lucille Chung finally makes her debut with our Symphony in the famously intense concerto from the man most famous for The Carnival of the Animals. The evening concludes with another knockout, the legendary Overture to Richard Wagner’s early opera RIENZI, which took Paris by storm in 1869.
