Being a "Friend of the Maestro" means that you value and appreciate Alfred Savia’s thirty-one years of service to the tri-state community through over 700 performances, and that you choose to help celebrate his vision, which has led to, among other things, the creation of two youth orchestras, the Eykamp String Quartet, Messiah, outdoor concerts, Nutracker and other ballets, Music Alive residencies, the commissioning of new works, concerts in outlying communities, and fully-staged opera!

The colorful Concertino Cusqueño by American composer Gabriela Lena Frank is a perfect curtain raiser. The work’s folkloric melodies and dance rhythms are inspired by the composer’s own Peruvian heritage and her admiration for British composer Benjamin Britten.

The Rachmaninoff second Piano Concerto is one of the greatest, most recognizable works of all time. Daniel Hsu’s passionate performance will bring the house down!

The Sibelius No. 2 evokes the rugged landscape and fierce independence of Sibelius’ homeland with its sweeping melodies and powerful rhythms.
