This concert explores resilience through music and the message of hope. Opening with a lush and inspiring “Coplandish” overture by composer Anthony DiLorenzo, Anthem of Hope was written during the pandemic. This will be followed by a concerto for cello, Never Give Up, by the Turkish composer, Fazil Say. While written in response to terror attacks that occurred in Turkey, the work ends with a very hopeful and peaceful message. The concert will close with the most iconic work in classical music, Beethoven’s 5th Symphony, a piece that symbolizes hope probably more than any in the repertoire.
