In our first Relaxed Performance for adults, the most famous four notes in music usher in a towering masterpiece for the ages—Beethoven’s timeless and immortal Fifth Symphony. Intrepid Canadian cellist Jean-Guihen Queyras opens the concert with the brooding, introspective beauty of Schumann’s Cello Concerto.
These concerts are designed to be more welcoming to neurodiverse patrons, including those on the autism spectrum, those with sensory and communication disorders, ADHD, learning disabilities, dementia, or those who simply want a more informal concert experience.
Symphony No. 5
