Conducted by Music Director Israel Getzov and assistant conductor Isaac Terceros of the Santa Cruz Philharmonic in Bolivia, Echoes of Desire features music from three of the greatest masterminds of orchestral repertoire: Verdi, Mozart, and Beethoven.

“This concert is the culmination of a 15-year project in which we have performed all of Beethoven’s works, and will now be performing the final of the nine symphonies, which is a major feat of a growing orchestra. We saved Symphony No. 6 for last because it is the most challenging and delicate of them all, and the audience will surely love it.” Getzov said.

Lorraine Duso Kitts, double reeds professor at UCA and international performer, will be playing the “Oboe Concerto in C Major” by Mozart alongside the orchestra. This impressive and fascinating solo is one of the most important concertos in the oboe repertoire.

Echoes of Desire is sponsored by Centennial Bank.
