Guest Conductor Damon Gupton takes the podium for Tchaikovsky’s epic Fifth Symphony, which depicts a journey from darkness to triumphant light. It’s full of passion, drama and some of Tchaikovsky’s greatest tunes. Concertmaster Daniel Sender is the soloist for Samuel Barber’s deeply lyrical Violin Concerto, and the concert opens with Rossini’s jubilant Overture to Semiramide.
