Violin virtuoso Benjamin Beilman, recipient of both the 2012 Avery Fisher Career Grant and the 2012 London Music Masters Award, takes the stage for Dvorak's Violin Concerto in A Minor. Mendelssohn's delightful "Scottish" Symphony closes the program.

We'll experience Bulgarian composer Pancho Vladigerov's Improvisation and Toccata before exploring the splendor and power of the sea with the daring harmonies and intricate orchestration of Debussy's La Mer.
