Shostakovich's 5th

Event by Southwest Michigan Symphony Orchestra

Sun. March 19, 2023 | 4:00pm - 6:00pm

The Southwest Michigan Symphony Orchestra recognizes musicians who create great art in the midst of darkness. American composer Jennifer Higdonb's blue cathedral is a memorial to her younger brother. Pianist and Gilmore Young Artist Maxim Lando performs Rachmaninoff's Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, a work that takes inspiration from the Dies Irae, or Day of Wrath. Shostakovich faced censorship under Soviet rule, but managed to triumph with his 5th Symphony.

Admission: Adults, Zone A - $35; Zone B-$20. Students, $5
