In the final concert of the season, we travel to France, long recognized as one of the world's true cultural and artistic capitals. From French composers to French-inspired works, we bring you the essence of the joie de vivre!

The evening will open with Haydn's Symphony No. 60 'Il Distratto', derived from incidental music composed for a play by the 18th century comedic French poet Regnard. Next, we are excited to welcome Yunpeng Wang, baritone, who has performed previously with world class ensembles including The Metropolitan Opera, Shanghai Symphony and Budapest Symphony Orchestra, and will join the orchestra for Berlioz' Les nuits d'ete. The season will close out with Bizet's enchanting Symphony in C.

  • Symphony No. 60 "Il Distratto" Joseph Haydn
  • Les nuits d'ete Hector Berlioz
