Music Director Manfred Honeck begins the season with the lovesick Hector Berlioz's opioid hallucinations in the visionary Symphonie fantastique.

Grammy-winning pianist Yefim Bronfman performs Liszt's demanding Piano Concerto #2.

The program opens with Alan Fletcher's third concerto for the PSO's woodwind principals, this time featuring Principal Oboist Cynthia Koledo DeAlmeida. More Info
