7:30 pm Verizon Hall
MacMillan's organ concerto A Scotch Bestiary is a witty musical caricature of the personalities of a menagerie of characters. Yannick leads the Orchestra in a “best of” treasury of Handel's sunny Water Music. Storm clouds gather over the North Sea as we conclude with Britten's Four Sea Interludes from Peter Grimes, the most famous of English operas.
