The Grand Finale of the 2022-23 season promises virtuosity, splendor, and gorgeous music making. The masterful violinist Gil Shaham’s performance of the Brahms Violin Concerto promises to be a musical thrill ride; technically challenging with all the musical poetry intact. The Phoenix Symphony Chorus and the young musical phenom from Harvard, countertenor Benjamin Wenzelberg, join the orchestra for Leonard Bernstein’s Chichester Psalms, a wondrous meditation on a collection of Psalms with text in the original Hebrew—“tonal and tuneful” in Bernstein’s phrase. Fanfare G.A.F.: An American Overture by composer Kevin Scott, a native New Yorker whose works have been performed by the Atlanta, Houston, and St. Louis Symphonies is also featured.
Time: 7:30 pm
