Event Details

Join the APO for an evening of firsts. In these troubled times, the evening opens with John Williams’ Prayer for Peace from the Academy Award-nominated film, Munich.

Next, the evening features American Solstice composed by Barbara Harbach. It plays with three interesting musical themes, evolving into an extended fugue, and finishes with a resounding final statement.

We complete the concert with French innovator Camille Saint-Saëns’ Cello Concerto No. 1, featuring brilliant cellist Anita Graef. The composition is considered by many to be one of the greatest cello concertos ever.
