Chamber Strings Concert Full Shot

The Music Center at Strathmore

Join us for performances featuring talented and passionate musicians from the DMV area. MCYO’s younger ensembles will present hidden gems by Mozart, Chevalier de Saint-George, Tchaikovsky, Gershwin, Romero, and more. The Philharmonic, MCYO's flagship orchestra, performs virtuosic works by Strauss, Sibelius, and Marquez, among others. In collaboration with Site-Specific Dances, the performance culminates in an immersive world premiere of Polina Nazaykinskaya's soul-stirring Fenix. This multidisciplinary work showcases the dramatic landscapes of Sedona, while hoping to impart a sense of great reverence for our precious natural world, its epic scale, and its dynamic geological processes.
