For this weekend, the YSO looks to two composers who were National Heroes in their homelands—Dmitri Shostakovich in Russia and Jean Sibelius in Finland. Additionally, our concert commemorates the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr in a piece using Robert Kennedy’s speech in the wake of MLK’s tragic assassination.
