Language of the People


Join us for a concert exploring community identity and pride featuring TBSO Assistant Concertmaster Kathlyn Stevens. Ginasteraโ€™s variations was composed as the result of a commission from his home country of Argentina; he was able to adapt folk traditions into his personal style. Mendelssohnโ€™s Violin Concerto has a long tradition of cementing a soloistโ€™s place in the world, used to showcase oneโ€™s personality and uniqueness. Dinuk Wijeratne uses the โ€œ21st century language of the peopleโ€, the modern pop genre, to revitalize a lost art, and the great โ€œPapaโ€ Haydn wows us with Symphony 102, considered by many to be his best.
