Internationally acclaimed violinist Rachel Barton Pine will perform as soloist in the Brahms Violin Concerto.

Led by Music Director and Conductor Lucas Richman, the program will begin with the King Stephan Overture by Beethoven, followed by Schumann’s Symphony No. 4. To conclude the program, violinist Rachel Barton Pine will breathe fresh life into the Violin Concerto by Johannes Brahms, an audience favorite.
