Pianist Garrick Ohlsson kicks off the Festival Orchestra series at Walk Festival Hall with a Beethoven Piano Extravaganza—performing all five concerti over two evenings. Other highlights include Mahler’s “Resurrection” Symphony with soloists and the GTMF Chorus, plus guest appearances by the St. Lawrence String Quartet, pianist Ingrid Fliter, violinist Augustin Hadelich, cellist Johannes Moser and GTMF/LA Phil Principal Trumpet Thomas Hooten. Markus Stenz returns as guest conductor; Eun Sun Kim and Dalia Stasevska make their debuts.

Crowd-favorite Capathia Jenkins joins us again as vocalist for our Patriotic Pops concert at the Center for the Arts Park. A free Family Concert will also be presented outdoors.

The world-class talents of the Festival Orchestra musicians are featured as part of a seven-concert chamber music series.
