Clara Lisle, Soprano

Tragedies & Triumphs!

March 1 & 2, 2019

Embark on an evening of high drama, moving from despair to elation. The concert opens with The Tragic Overture, Op. 81, Johannes Brahms' dark, uncompromising commentary on the inherent tragedy of human life. His themes surge and spin in a tempest of emotion.

Soprano Clara Lisle follows offering an enchanting mix of opera favorites, some sweetly charming and others imbued with intense longing. Nikolay Rimsky-Korsakov’s exuberant and virtuosic Capriccio Espagnol concludes the evening’s performance.

Inventive Voices!

April 12 & 13, 2019

Shostakovich, Mussorgsky, and Beethoven were all game-changing composers who revolutionized the world of classical music and your concert experience this evening will highlight that revolution.

It will also put the spotlight on local, emerging talents who have won this season’s Young Artist Competition. You will hear the Festive Overture by Shostakovich, a vivacious and thoroughly Russian celebratory work that alternates between grandiose, lyrical and playful. Mussorgsky’s Night on Bald Mountain was one of the first tone poems written by a Russian composer and is based on the legend of a witches sabbath on St. John’s Eve.

The evening closes with​ ​Symphony No. 1 in C Major by Ludwig van Beethoven. His first foray into the symphonic form, a form he eventually changed so dramatically that it would seem as if he invented it.
