This jubilant celebration begins with Outburst, an engaging work by the 2023 Pulitzer Prize winner Michael Abels. From sublime melodies to incredible contrapuntal genius, Mozart’s Symphony No. 41 is the epitome of the composer’s work in this genre. Following the rarely heard and lively Festive March of Dvórak, we’ll join with the musical world in celebrating the 200th anniversary of the birth of Anton Bruckner with his majestic and soul-inspiring Te Deum for soloists, chorus, and full orchestra.

Michael Abels: Outburst
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Symphony No. 41 in C, K. 551 (“Jupiter”)
Antonin Dvorák: Festival March
Anton Bruckner: Locus iste
Anton Bruckner: Os justi
Anton Bruckner: Te Deum
