WSO: Dvořák Symphony No. 8

Saturday, November 18, 2023

Time: 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

A love of Bohemian folk music was the inspiration for Symphony No. 8 by Antonín Dvořák, written in recognition of his election to the Bohemian Academy of Science, Literature and Arts. The mood is cheerful and optimistic. Dvořák’s piece shares the stage with Victor Herbert’s Cello Concerto No. 2.
Herbert, best known for his score for Babes in Toyland, has created a piece filled with graceful melodies and a spirited finale you would expect from a master of operettas. This concert features the WSO’s Principal Cellist, Andrew McIntosh. This entrancing concert will brim with exuberance.

Robert Franz, conductor
Andrew McIntosh, cello
