    Micah McLaurin, Piano

    Sibelius FinlandiaRachmaninoff Rhapsody on a

    Theme of PaganiniShostakovich Symphony No. 5

    his concert explores musics call to freedom. The rousing

    and turbulent Finlandia wasSibelius nationalistic response toRussian oppression. Shostakovichs5th Symphony gives voice to his fellow citizens despair and secrethopes for a better world during the Stalinist purges of the 1930s, mingling tragedy and triumph in an unforgettable creation. Tackled by only the most fearless of pianists,Rachmaninoffs Rhapsody on aTheme of Paganini is a brilliant set ofvariations, including one of the mostrecognizable themes in all of Romanticclassical music. Continuing our special relationship with The CurtisInstitute of Music, we welcomeMicah McLaurin, winner of severalinternational piano competitions, including the Ettlingen InternationalCompetition for Young Pianists.

    t is with great pride that I

    begin my third season as Music

    Director of the Kennett Symphony.

    I feel the ties of our musical family growing

    stronger, and it has been a pleasure, both

    personally and musically, to get to know

    more of the individuals that make up the

    Kennett Symphony.

    There is a unique thrill in witnessing the

    energy and passion of professional musicians

    recreating musical masterpieces right

    before your eyes. Take a moment to

    explore what we have to offer, and give

    us the opportunity to inspire you.
