Wharton Center for Performing Arts

Brahms Symphony No. 2 has been described as “all rippling streams, blue sky, sunshine and cool green shadows.” The piece was written while Brahms was on summer holiday and stands in stark contrast to his 1st symphony. You will hear why early listeners came to call this Brahms’ Pastoral Symphony. The audience will also experience Patrick Harlin’s world premiere of Earthrise and Florence Price’s Piano Concerto in One Movement performed by Van Cliburn International Piano Competition Finalist, Clayton Stephenson. This is a concert you won’t want to miss.
