No heroic season would be complete without Ein Heldenleben (A Hero’s Life) by Richard Strauss. This orchestral tour de force is not just the inspiration for this concert but for the entire year. Our 2018-19 grand finale will also include Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture, a depiction of Russia’s defeat of Napoleon, and a concerto showcasing Christopher Rex, former principal cellist of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra.
