  • Steven Copes
    Date: Sunday, October 8, 2017
    Time: 3:00 pm
    Location: Verizon Hall, 1 Civic Center Drive
    Symphonic Series
    Beethoven
    Egmont Overture
    Beethoven
    Violin Concerto in D major, Op. 61
    Beethoven
    Symphony No. 7 in A major, Op. 92

    The best of Beethoven, according to the composer himself. Who are we to disagree? Hear the drama and pathos of the Egmont Overture, Beethoven's magnificent Seventh Symphony, and an electrifying performance of his Violin Concerto by Steven Copes, the brilliant and electrifying concertmaster of the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra, in his Mankato debut.
