Lush & Lyrical

Take a spring stroll in the lush and lyrical music of Elgar’s Introduction and Allegro, Vaughan Williams pastoral Oboe Concerto featuring the ISO’s Principal Oboist Russell Hoffman, and the energetic Fifth Symphony of Schubert. This certainly will be a glorious night that awakens the optimism of spring!
