    Colors and melodies shimmer in three works that challenge notions of “traditional” and “new.” Playfulness and groove drive Libby Larsen’s Overture for the End of a Century; spring’s warmth arrives in Dvorák’s Symphony No. 9; and guest artists Korey Konkol and Stephanie Arado captivate us with melodic virtuosity in Bruch’s Double Concerto.

Persichetti’s Pastoral for Wind Quintet and Borodin’s In the Steppes of Central Asia journey through landscapes real and imagined, and William Grant Still’s Symphony No. 5 “The Western Hemisphere”.
