What happens after the upheaval of a revolution? For Chinese-American composer Zhou Long, the end of the restrictive Cultural Revolution marked the beginning of his artistic career. In Peronist Argentina, composer Ginastera experimented with incorporating traditional folk songs into works for the concert hall. And after watching Napoleon crown himself emperor and crush the revolutionary ideals of liberty and fraternity, Beethoven had to dig deep to find light in his despair. At this concert, you will hear the music of new worlds taking shape, rising up after bloody and frightening upheaval, re-establishing their foundation and reaching for the future.

The program includes Ginastera's Variaciones concertantes; Zhou Long's The Deep, Deep Sea, with guest artist Jill Heyboer, SSO Principal Flute; Beethoven's Symphony No. 5.
