The season begins! Opening night will showcase the NHSO’s passion for community, artistry, and defying expectations. Pianist lya Yakhusev returns to the Woolsey stage to perform both of Shostakovich’s Piano Concerti, which are considered by many to be his most lyrical and beautiful works. Mendelssohn’s delightful “Italian” Symphony and the premiere of Hannah Lash’s third chapter in the Lash/Voynich Project will spark the imagination and set the stage for a year of inspiring concerts!
This concert is the 2016-2017 School Night at the Symphony, when the NHSO invites all K-12 students, teachers, staff, and their families to attend free of charge. Advanced registration is required.
