Madison Symphony Orchestra

November 12, 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Thomas Mesa Madison Symphony Orchestra

The majesty of the Grand Canyon unfolds musically and visually in the spectacle of Ferde Grofé’s expansive musical palette accompanied by stunning projected imagery. Cuban-American cellist Thomas Mesa, a hit in his 2019 Madison recital, balances the program with the equally expansive and expressive Cello Concerto of Antonin Dvořák. Two Madison premieres, Arthur Honegger’s Rugby and Lyric for String Orchestra by African-American composer George Walker complete the program.

Honegger, Rugby
Dvořák, Cello Concerto in B minor
