Doors: 6:30 PM
Concert: 7:30 PM
The CSO kicks off its 90th Anniversary Season with Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov's timeless Scheherazade, a symphonic suite that conjures the magic of Arabian Nights, its lush orchestrations narrating tales of love, adventure, and enchantment. The concert also includes Jessica Wells' Zodiac Animalia, and Sergei Prokofiev's Violin Concerto No. 1, expertly performed by violin virtuoso and winner of the 2015 Sphinx Competition, Eduardo Rios.
Don't forget your phone or smart device to access our Digital Program Book at the concert!
