This program brings three unique and superior artistic voices together in an intriguing juxtaposition of old and new. We begin with Harlin- a nod to dance music that will have you tapping your foot. Then we turn to one of Haydn’s most extraordinary and dramatic symphonies, the last of his London series. Finally, we close the concert with the return of another beloved performer, Chloë Hanslip, known for her mesmerizing and spellbinding performances. Hanslip will tackle what is notoriously known as one of the most difficult concertos ever written, and the only one Sibelius ever wrote.

The program will also feature a world premiere by one of our community’s most eloquent and accomplished composers, Monica Houghton. In this piece, Houghton describes this new work as a “love letter to the Great Basin”.

We conclude this season with a powerful grand finale exploring the marriage of art and music. Listeners will experience a brand-new symphony by Jimmy López Bellido, inspired by Nevada Museum of Art’s photographic collection, The Altered Landscape: Photographs of a Changing Environment. The composition explores the dynamic interconnectedness of humans and the Earth and envisions a hypothetical future where we exist in harmony with our natural environment. Then we explore an art museum in Mussorgsky's mind, as he imagines walking from one picture to the next, characterizing each painting through sound.
