First and second year undergraduate students make up the Eastman School Symphony Orchestra (ESSO), conducted by Neil Varon and graduate conducting students. In the Enigma Variations, Edward Elgar introduces a theme that serves as the basis for a series of variations, each a musical depiction of a person in the composer’s life. As Elgar commented, “This work, commenced in a spirit of humor and continued in deep seriousness, contains sketches of the composer’s friends.”  Douglas Lowry’s Exordium Nobile opens the program. This performance is free and open to the public.

Price: FREE
