En garde!

Two Classical-era foils headline our season premiere, Clash of the Titans, a free community concert in Cheesman Park. First up, championship fencer Joseph Bologne, known as the Chevalier de Saint-Georges, proved his might with both sword and pen writing dozens of musical compositions, including his deft and delicate first symphony. Next, DPO Principal Clarinet Kwami Barnett tackles Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s soaring Clarinet Concerto with agility and precision before the all-powerful finale — Mozart’s Symphony No. 41, “Jupiter.”
