The first Mainstage concert of the 2019/2020 season features the lush lyrical melodies of Schubert’s Symphony No. 8 and the thunderous second symphony of Rachmaninoff. The season starts with a bang! The November concert also features the presentation of the Portsmouth Athenaeum Prize in the Humanities.

Schubert Symphony No. 8 (Unfinished Symphony)
Rachmaninov Symphony No. 2
