SLO Symphony: A Grand Occasion
This concert features solo trumpeter Andrew Balio performing Arutunian’s Trumpet Concerto and a side-by-side performace with the Youth Symphony.
Mr. Balio performed a solo recital during the pandemic for the Symphony’s virtual concerts in 2021. The Symphony opens with Patrice Rushen’s iconic Mine Eyes Have Seen the Glory. This work is dedicated to and inspired by the memory of the late Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and includes a quote from his I Have A Dream speech. Concluding with Brahms’ Symphony No.1 in C minor.
