Surprise

Saturday, November 1 // 7:30PM - 9:30PM

An experiment in concertgoing, this program will be revealed at the performance itself! We have a few hints, though: a surprise (and surprising) scherzo by up-and-comer Ted Hearne, a major piano concerto with the winner of UNI’s Midwest International Piano Competition, and an orchestral classic chosen by you from among Tchaikovsky 6, Firebird, Shostakovich 10 or Sheherazade. We think you’ll be pleasantly surprised!
