Maestro Tito Munoz returns for a powerful performance of Shostakovitch’s Symphony No.7, a patriotic hymn to his hometown of Leningrad and a rallying cry to the foes of fascist Russia. This large orchestral work masterfully fuses Shostakovich’s emotional themes and motifs into “music written with the heart’s blood.” Concertmaster Steven Moeckel, a Prescott favorite, joins this program with a breathless performance of Samuel Barber’s Violin Concerto. To open, maestro Munoz once again features the music of young American composer Adam Schoenberg for the third straight season, this time presenting Schoenberg’s idyllic and lyrical Canto, inspired by the birth of his son.

Tickets are only available through the Yavapai Symphony Association at (928) 776-4255.
