TCHAIKOVSKY - The Year 1812 (“1812 Overture”), Op. 49

Known for musical variety and surprising soloists, Beethoven & Blue Jeans continues that legacy with Beethoven’s Symphony No. 8 and the rousing spectacle of Tchaikovsky’s “1812 Overture.” The program also features Robert Sheena, Principal English Horn of the Boston Symphony Orchestra and arguably the best English Horn player in America today. Sheena will perform Two Sonnets After Shakespeare, a work commissioned for him and only performed once before. Casual attire is welcome as we enjoy these works and others by Bach and Daugherty.
