Made in Brahms-Town

The JSO Performs Brahms and Italian Opera

Featuring the masterful Symphony No. 1 of Brahms and selections from Italian operas by Rossini, Verdi, and Puccini.

The rich sumptuous music of Johannes Brahms is what inspired Maestro Blachly and many others to become professional musicians, and his symphonies are widely regarded as the most beloved in the repertoire. Italian operas formed the heart of JSO’s Opera Festivals for more than 20 years, and these stellar selections will be both familiar and beloved.
