The PSO’s final mainstage performance of the season features two powerfully evocative works: Vivian Fung’s Dust Devils and Edward Elgar’s Enigma Variations. Dust Devils captures the journey of emotional swirls in the mind—both calm and full of raw intense energy. Enigma Variations tours us through the personal landscape of Elgar’s life with a selection of musical characterizations of the people who were closest to him. The concert will also include a performance by the 2023 Young Artist Competition winner.
All concerts begin at 3:00 pm and are preceded at 1:45 pm by Inside the Music, a free pre-concert discussion that provides entertaining insight into the afternoon’s program.
