Columbia Orchestra: Brahms, Strauss, and Simon

02/04/2023 to 02/04/2023

5460 Trumpeter Road, Columbia, MD 21044

Brahms took more than 20 years to get his first symphony right and the result is perfection! In Portrait of a Queen, Carlos Simon traces the journey of a figurative queen "from her journey as a leader in Africa to a slave on an American plantation, to a disenfranchised citizen subject to Jim Crow laws, and finally to the strong matriarch found in many churches presently." Finally, Columbia Orchestra favorite Marlissa Hudson joins us for Four Last Songs with which Richard Strauss' wrote his final farewell in music. Tickets: $10-$30.
