Our Fall Concert kicks off with a bang! You will enjoy American composer David Diamond’s Rounds for String Orchestra, a fiddle-inspired and high-energy piece. Next you will hear Minnesota composer Steve Heitzeg’s beautiful Flower of the Earth, inspired by the artwork of famous painter Georgia O’Keeffe. The final piece of the Fall Concert is Joseph Haydn’s 82nd Symphony, subtitled ‘The Bear,’ a joyful piece full of wit and humor!
This year’s Children’s Concert features Sergei Prokofiev’s iconic Peter and the Wolf, an adventurous tale for students brought to life by Prokofiev’s brilliant music and orchestration. The piece features different instruments personifying characters in the story of Peter, his grandfather, the bird, the cat, the duck, the hunters…just beware of the wolf!

Our Spring Concert opens with Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro. Minneapolis-based mezzo-soprano Clara Osowski will join the Symphony as it performs the works of Minnesota composers Dominick Argento (Casa Guidi) and Libby Larson (Raspberry Island Dreaming). The Spring Concert concludes with Debussy’s popular Petite Suite. Learn more about attending the Winona Symphony Orchestra’s Spring Concert here.
