Program
David Diamond Rounds for String Orchestra
Steve Heitzeg Flower of the Earth
Joseph Haydn Symphony No. 82 ‘The Bear’

The 2018-2019 season kicks off with a bang! You will enjoy American composer David Diamond’s Rounds for String Orchestra, a fiddle-inspired and high-energy piece commissioned and premiered by Dmitri Metropoulos and the Minneapolis Symphony in 1944. The vigor of ‘Rounds’ will be contrasted with living Minnesota composer Steve Heitzeg’s beautiful Flower of the Earth, a piece written in homage to Georgia O’Keeffe and inspired by four of her works of art.  Rounding out the program is Joseph Haydn’s 82nd Symphony, subtitled ‘The Bear.’ Written as Haydn was reaching the height of his incredible popularity, the symphony is full of wit, humor, and vivacious joy!
