  • Beethoven - Leonore Overture No. 3

  • Elgar - Cello Concerto
  • Julie Albers, Cello
  • Tchaikovsky - Symphony No. 5

The Reading Symphony Orchestra opens its 2017-18 season with three classical masterworks, including Beethoven’s powerful and intensely dramatic Leonore Overture No. 3 and Tchaikovsky’s striking Symphony No. 5. Soloist Julie Albers joins the orchestra for Elgar’s Cello Concerto. Praised by the Providence Journal for her “sweet tone and tender phrasing,” Ms. Albers takes on this richly introspective and elegiac work that was composed in reaction to World War I.
