The Russian Soul in Music: From Tchaikovsky to Shostakovich

This series will feature Sun Valley Summer Symphony musicians performing in intimate ensembles. Brief discussions about the programs bring the music “into focus.”

The In Focus concerts utilize intimate ensembles and small chamber orchestras to create an eclectic programming mix. Each performance integrates brief discussion about the evening’s program, bringing you inside the music. Concerts begin at 6:00 PM and are generally about 90 minutes in duration. You are encouraged to sit inside the Sun Valley Pavilion to best experience how these concerts bring the music “into focus!”
