Openings — Fall 2022 Concert Livestream

11/05/2022 07:30 PM - 09:30 PM CT


Fanfares, marches, and jubilant melodies open our 30th anniversary season in the Festive Overture of iconic American composer William Grant Still. Nino Rota, composer of film music for The Godfather parts I and II, brings his dramatic gifts to the concert stage with the playful and lyrical Concerto for Bassoon, featuring MPO’s own Brian Hadley. And the pastoral open spaces of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 6 are host to dances, storms and songs of gratitude.
