Anthony's 200th birthday and featuring Voice Professor Carmen Balthrop in the role of speaker. The program will also feature works by close friends and composers Clara Schumann and Johannes Brahms. Schumann's Concerto in A minor for Piano and Orchestra will feature Miko Kominami as piano soloist and the concert will conclude with Brahms' Symphony No. 4—his last symphony.
