Auspicious Beginnings

Wednesday, August 15 - 7:30 PM


Many works of music are defined by how they begin; sometimes a composer's entire career can also be guided by their first endeavors. This concert celebrates great beginnings, from the birth of opera with Giulio Caccini to the First Symphony of Beethoven.
