Join us at Weatherwax Hall as Swedish Chamber Orchestra concertmaster Clara Saitkoulov joins us to play one of the most famous violin concertos by Felix Mendelssohn. The program will begin with a work by Felix’s sister Fanny – a talented composer in her own right whose work is only now gaining the attention it deserves. The evening will conclude with Mendelssohn’s well-known Symphony No. 3 – The Scottish Symphony – a nod towards spring and youth.
Join us for a free, interactive lecture before the concert at 6:30pm.

Keep the celebration going after the baton is down and the instruments are put away. Taking place in various locations around Jackson following Saturday evening concerts, these events are a great opportunity to mingle with musicians, guest artists, composers, other symphony fans, and of course, the Maestro. All are welcome at this event and the $20 ticket buys you entry, hors d’oeuvres, and drinks.
