Classics Series

2017/2018 Classics Series

Maestro Lang-Lessing will open the Classics Series on September 22, 2017 with Debussy, Berlioz, and our first-ever artist in residence—the foremost pianist of her generation—Olga Kern, as she performs Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2.

The 2017/2018 Classics Series includes 14 concerts featuring masterpieces by some of the world’s most recognizable composers—Beethoven, Bernstein, Brahms, Mozart, Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninoff, and many more. Olga Kern opens the season with Rachmaninoff and is also featured in our season finale, along with special guest, son, Vladislav Kern, as they perform Mozart’s Concerto for Two Pianos.
