The BSO is pleased to present the Minnesota premiere performance of Margaret Bonds’ Montgomery Variations, a beautiful and powerful piece. Our own Michael Sutton will rise from his seat as concertmaster to lead the BSO strings in a violin solo by Franz Schubert. A full-length musical joke in the form of Shostakovich’s Ninth Symphony will round out the program, guaranteed to leave you smiling at his many musical winks and nods!
