March powers through like a lion with Stravinsky's Firebird Suite which will have your heart racing and put you on the edge of your seat. "The Grieg Concerto is an absolute joy to play. I'm always struck by the perfect balance he achieves in this work between brilliance and Norwegian folk-like lyricism. The opening of the concerto - like the first few notes of the Beethoven 5th Symphony - is one of the most recognizable gestures in all of classical music. I have many favorite 'movements' in it: the brilliant cadenza in the first movement, the dance episodes in the last movement, and the dreamy slow movement - truly the heart of the concerto." - Anton Nel  We dive into the 20th century for an orchestral legend with the delicate sounds of Debussy impressionistic music with a wordless choir. We even exit like a lion with U of M composer Schachter's joyful piece Freylekhe Tanzen.
