Program to include selections from Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 5. What can music tell us about a composer’s true feelings? Dmitri Shostakovich wrote his Fifth Symphony to show how patriotic he could be, borrowing the Soviet Union’s preferred musical styles. See what you think about his true meaning.

This season, the Young People’s Concerts pay tribute to those who have shaped our musical world, from Bernstein to Ellington to Shostakovich. Along the way, we will see how Mozart shaped Tchaikovsky’s work a century later. Music inspires music from generation to generation. Inspire your young listeners with four unforgettable multimedia concerts.
