Masterworks V: Fierce Females
March 5, 2023 @ 2:00 pm CST
Our celebration of women in music commences with Joan Tower’s bold and dramatic Fanfare for the Uncommon Woman. You’ll then be swept up by the nineteenth-century contrapuntal master Louise Farrenc’s energetic and restless Symphony No. 3 and an excerpt from Florence Price’s flowing yet turbulent Mississippi River Suite. Wei Luo returns to the Quad Cities to close the program with Sergei Prokofiev’s fiercely virtuosic Piano Concerto No. 2.
Tickets are currently available only in a Full or Pick-3 Masterworks Subscription or as an add-on for QCSO at the Movies or Up Close Subscribers. Tickets will go on sale to the public on May 17, 2022, at 9:00 am.
