The season opens with Beethoven’s best known and most performed piano concerto, paired with music by Mozart contemporary Marianna Martines. Vaughan Williams’ soul-soothing Symphony No. 5 was composed to unify and console a nation during WWII. Music Director Donato Cabrera chose this piece as a balm to our Bay Area community, in acknowledgment of our shared experience during the pandemic.
