The exciting, powerful sounds of brass instruments bookend this tour de force program featuring Brahms Symphony No. 3. World-class trumpet duo Barbara Butler and Charles Geyer shine in an arrangement of melodies from Bizet’s Carmen that was commissioned especially for them. We salute student and amateur musicians everywhere in a unique collaboration with the Clark County School District, known for their strong and vibrant music programs. Members of their honors brass ensemble will join the Philharmonic in a dazzling opening fanfare by Gabrieli.
