Grand Finale with Honeck
Manfred Honeck closes the season with the PSO's Gorton family (James, Gretchen and daughter Heidi) in an imaginative Concert Piece by Eugene Goossens.

The Frick features three exhibitions of printmaking: its own collections of 18th-century mezzotints and 19th century chomolithographs, complemented by the traveling exhibition The Prints of Jacques Callot. The three shows span over 200 years, yet all the works demonstrate the importance of the printmaker in recording, publishing and disseminating a distinct view of the world.
