Symphony No. 8 in G Major

From the morning sun’s rays peeking over the horizon to a whirling dance In the Hall of the Mountain King, Grieg’s Peer Gynt Suite has transported audiences to mythical landscapes for more than a century. Talented young musicians from the Youth Orchestra sit side-by-side with Boise Phil musicians on stage for this popular orchestral showpiece.

Principal Clarinet Carmen Izzo steps into the spotlight for a virtuosic performance of a notoriously difficult Clarinet Concerto by Nielsen. You’ll be dazzled as the clarinet and orchestra tussle with each other.

Sunshine returns full-force with Dvořák’s Symphony No. 8. With joyful fanfares, soaring melodies, delicate birdcalls and lively dances, Dvořák pulls from the Bohemian folk music that he loved – gifting us with an overwhelming sense of optimism.

NEW THIS SEASON: Pre-Concert Talks will be at the matinee and evening performances. 

Join Musicologist Bradley Berg and Music Director Eric Garcia (and special guests) as they guide you through the music you are about to hear, providing an enlightening look at the repertoire and composers before the performance begins. Bring your questions! Please gather inside the concert hall by the stage.

Matinee Pre-Concert Talk starts at 11:45 am

Evening Pre-Concert Talk starts at 6:15 pm
