Guest Artist John O'Conor, piano

A program of all Beethoven completes the season. The Overture to King Stephen was commissioned in 1811 as a commemorative work to celebrate the founding of Hungary in the year 1000 by King Stephen I.  It included an overture and nine vocal numbers that shows a more playful and dramatic side to Beethoven’s personality. Pianist Jon O’Conor mesmerized and delighted us with his masterful performances of Mozart and John Field in 2016.  Back by popular demand, he performs Piano Concerto No. 3 in C minor which, along with the famous or should we say infamous Symphony No. 5, promises to rock the house.
