Music Director Salvador Brotons returns to Skyview Concert Hall to lead the VSO in two memorable concerts with special Guest Artist – clarinet virtuoso David Shifrin, Artistic Director of Chamber Music Northwest in Portland.


Mr. Shifrin will dazzle the audience with two virtuosic masterworks for clarinet – C. M. von Weber’s romantic Concertino for Clarinet and Orchestra and Rossini’s Introduction, Theme and Variations, which provides a sparkling set of virtuosic variations for the clarinet.


Maestro Brotons begins this Classical/Romantic Period-inspired program with Gluck’s solemn overtureIphigenia in Aulis and closes out the concert with Mozart’s stunningly beautiful Symphony No. 40.
