    Dudley Orchestra Spring Concert

    7:30pm to 9:00pm


    Sanders Theatre

    The Dudley Orchestra is thrilled to invite you to join us for our spring concert! Included on the program is Claude Debussy’s Rondes de Printemps, one of the great modernist’s final statements in the orchestral medium, the effulgent Piano Concerto no. 23 in A major of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart with soloist Daniel Walden, and Robert Schumann’s buoyant Symphony no. 1 in Bb major - a work understood by the composer to be a poetic evocation of spring’s coming.

    Tickets are available for purchase at the door, or online at: https://www.boxoffice.
