Violin legend Midori joins the Sarasota Orchestra for an intensely romantic concert. In tribute to the 100th anniversary of Leonard Bernstein's birth, Midori interprets his serenade for violin and orchestra, a beautiful work that serves as an ode to love.

Love of nature is the central theme for Beethoven's famous "Pastoral" Symphony. You'll envision musical nymphs and centaurs frolicking through the countryside and the perfect peace found in a pastoral setting. Rossini's Barber of Seville Overture, from the famous opera, a comedic love story, is full of zest and whimsy.


Overture to The Barber of Seville
Serenade after Plato's Symposium
Symphony No. 6 (Pastorale)
