Shostakovich’s 5th

Howard Performing Arts Center 4160 E Campus Cir Dr, Berrien Springs, MI

The SMSO recognizes musicians that create great art in the midst of darkness. American composer Jennifer Higdon’s blue cathedral is a memorial to her younger brother. Pianist and Gilmore Young Artist Maxim Lando performs Rachmaninoff’s Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, a work that takes inspiration from the Dies Irae or "Day of Wrath". Shostakovich faced censorship under Soviet rule but managed to triumph with his 5th Symphony.

An American in Paris

Howard Performing Arts Center 4160 E Campus Cir Dr, Berrien Springs, MI

Maestro Aubin celebrates his personal connection to French culture with a mixture of French and American music. Aubin welcomes back Mitsuru Kubo and Jeremy Crosmer to perform hidden gems by Fernande Decruck, a composer near and dear to his heart. Musicians from the LMYO join the SMSO on music from Aaron Copland’s Rodeo. The season closes with Gershwin’s An American in Paris.
