Pre-concert lecture at 7:15PM in the lower lobby.

For centuries, the tragic tale of fated, star-crossed lovers has occupied an array of artistic mediums including literature, opera, and ballet. The best example of the latter is Prokofiev's electric interpretation of Romeo and Juliet. Performing excerpts from the orchestral suite, the USO ends its concert season. Two contrasting works comprise the first half of the program: Mendelssohn’s work of juvenalia, A Midsummer Night’s Dream Overture and the intense last statement of Bloch’s Jewish Cycle, Schelomo featuring 2017 SMTD Concerto Competition winner Caroline Kim.

PROGRAM: Mendelssohn- Midsummer Night’s Dream Overture; Bloch- Schelomo, Caroline Kim, cello; Prokofiev- Suite from Romeo and Juliet
