Musician Spotlight: Celebrating John Miller, Jr.

GABRIELI
Music for Double Brass Choir

DIETTER
Concerto for Two Bassoons

TCHAIKOVSKY
Symphony No. 5

This concert shines the spotlight on our bassoon section, particularly Principal Bassoon John Miller, Jr., now in his 44th year with the Orchestra—and the longest-tenured principal player ever in the Orchestra's history. He solos in Dietter's Concerto for Two Bassoons, with the second part taken in turn by each of his section colleagues. Framing their distinctive, mellow double-reed sound are Gabrieli's rich brass harmonies and Tchaikovsky's impassioned Symphony No. 5, a meditation on fate that concludes in a triumphal march. On the podium is our former music director Eiji Oue, famed for his charismatic performances. Come celebrate the many moods of a grand symphony orchestra!
