Season Opener: Dvořák 8

Maestro Andrew Kurtz leads the Gulf Coast Symphony in a program that recreates our first ever concert,  featuring Dvořák’s Symphony No. 8 in G Major.  Celebrated for its cheerful and optimistic vision, this symphony was composed on the occasion of Dvořák’s admission to Prague Academy, a distinction of great achievement.  Program includes Rossini’s Il Signor Bruschino Overture and Ravel’s Pavane Pour Une Infante Defunte.
