The program also includes a new composition by an Eastman School of Music student composer.

His reading of Beethoven’s “Pastoral” Symphony last summer captivated audiences. Now, Arild Remmereit leads Beethoven’s graceful Second Symphony. These concerts also afford the opportunity to discover the Piano Concerto of the 17-year-old Clara Wieck, composed shortly after she fell in love with Robert Schumann. Plus, the dramatic Overture to Macbeth, written in the midst of the Civil War by one of America’s earliest composers, William Henry Fry.

“Music Educators Night”: The RPO is proud to honor local music teachers during the performance on Thursday, May 10.

Pre-Concert Chat one hour before the performance.
