In “Songs of Innocence and Experience,” WVSO will explore the creativity of youth and the profundity of maturity. The orchestra will perform the overture to Verdi’s opera la Forza del Destino (the Force of Destiny), Mozart’s Symphony No. 35 (the “Haffner”), and Strauss’ tone poem Death and Transfiguration. WVSO will feature 2018 Young Musician Competition winner, violinist Keeley Brooks, in the first movement of Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto, Op. 64.
