Join your Vallejo Symphony for a new season at the beautiful Empress Theatre in downtown Vallejo and celebrate some of the most beautiful music ever written.
TCHAIKOVSKY – THE TEMPEST
CHOPIN – PIANO CONCERTO NO. 1
MOZART – SYMPHONY NO. 39
Cecile Licad takes the stage performing Chopin Piano Concerto No. 1, a lush and romantic work composed in his teens. Tchaikovsky’s The Tempest begins with a storm like none before, its rage clearing the seas and stage for the plot to unfold. Mozart’s Symphony No. 39, the first of his final Symphonies, closes the program.
