Weber: Oberon Overture
Beethoven: Piano Concerto No. 1
Sibelius: Symphony No. 2
Former longtime TFO Music Director Jahja Ling returns to conduct Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 1 — performed by his wife and noted Beethoven interpreter Jessie Chang — and Sibelius’ Symphony No. 2. Ling conducted the same Sibelius symphony in 1987 for TFO’s 20th anniversary, a pivotal performance that led to his appointment as music director.
Classical WSMR presents the return of former Music Director, Jahja Ling, leading The Florida Orchestra in an evening of music featuring Beethoven and Sibelius, in Ferguson Hall at the Straz Center for the Performing Arts. All proceeds from this special evening will benefit WUSF Public Media’s efforts to improve Classical WSMR’s signal strength and reach.
