    About this Concert:

    We're turning tradition on its head!  This concert allows you to experience the symphony like never before.  A limited number of concertgoers are invited to sit on stage,  among the orchestra and experience the music from the INSIDE OUT!
     
    Luminous international cello sensation Silver Ainomäe joins us to perform Dvorák's Cello Concerto, the unparalleled masterpiece for this instrument.
