Happy 70th WSO!
Oct 13, 2017 – Oct 14, 2017 at the Centennial Concert Hall
Celebration Victor Feldbrill, conductor of the WSO from 1958-1968, returns to open the 70th season of the WSO alongside Maestro Mickelthwate. Feldbrill transformed the WSO into the professional orchestra we know today. For this special performance he has chosen Beethoven’s dramatic Leonore Overture No.3.
Brahms swore to carry on Beethoven’s symphonic legacy, yet had such self-doubt it took twenty-one years to write his angst-ridden first symphony. His Second went much faster, completed in a single summer, and it reflects the beauty of nature, flowers, and sunshine.

Along with Johann Sebastian Bach and Ludwig van Beethoven, Johannes Brahms is the third of the famous “three B’s” of classical music. Brahms’s Symphony No. 2 is a warm and happy piece he wrote over a beautiful summer in 1877 in the Austrian province of Carinthia.
