Concert: Czech National Symphony Orchestra

Date: 12 February 2023 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM, Venue: Center for the Arts - George Mason University

The Czech National Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Steven Mercurio, will perform at the Center for the Arts at George Mason University on February 12, at 2 pm. 


Brahms: Violin Concerto in D major, Op. 77
Beethoven: Symphony No. 7 in A major, Op. 92

The acclaimed Czech National Symphony Orchestra (CNSO) returns to the Center with an uplifting program of masterworks and embraces the sheer joy and optimism of Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony. This good-for-your-spirit concert also showcases GRAMMY-nominated violinist Robert McDuffie, performing Brahms’s electrifying Violin Concerto in D major (Brahms’s only violin concerto). An international celebrity, McDuffie not only has appeared as a soloist with the world’s leading orchestras, but he has also performed with such diverse performers as Chuck Leavell, the late Gregg Allman, and actress/playwright Anna Deavere Smith. Composers including Philip Glass and Mike Mills of R.E.M have written music especially for him, and critics have raved about his performance style that is “demonstrative and physical, hard-driving without sacrificing sensitivity” (South Florida Classical Review). Under the direction of Music Director Steven Mercurio, the CNSO, celebrates its 30th anniversary in 2023. Join the Center for this unforgettable and inspiring afternoon with McDuffie and the Czech National Symphony Orchestra.
