Conductors from across the seven seas captain each movement of three musical masterpieces at our annual maestro relay. First up, it’s the daring drama of Ludwig van Beethoven’s Egmont Overture! Next, a hidden gem that has recently been given more chance to shine — Florence Price’s first violin concerto featuring DPO Associate Concertmaster Anna Katherine Barnett-Hart. The adventure ends with the brilliant Bohemian Symphony No. 8 by Antonín Dvořák.
Which conductor will unearth the treasure and win the prize? Come see and hear the cache of talent from the DPO International Conducting Workshop on March 4.
We’re opening our doors early at 5:45 pm for a special preconcert string ensemble performance of three rich contemporary and classical works. As at the main concert, each movement of the piece will be conducted by a different conductor taking part in our workshop.
