“Typically, symphony orchestra programs have a soloist. This time the soloist will be the orchestra,” Gomez said. “This unconventional performance will showcase the orchestra and be pleasing to the audience.”

The concert features works such as “Pushkin Waltzes” by Serge Prokofiev, “Russian Sailors' Dance” by Reinhold Gliere and “Symphony No. 8” by Antonin Dvorak.
