Royal Scottish National Orchestra
April 5 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Since its founding in 1891, the Royal Scottish National Orchestra (RSNO) has played an essential role in the musical life of its namesake country, including performing at the opening ceremony of the Scottish Parliament building in 2004. Known originally as the Scottish Orchestra, the ensemble was awarded Royal Patronage in 1977. Today the orchestra is led by the magnificent Danish conductor Thomas Søndergård serving his first season as music director. The RSNO program will feature symphonies by Sibelius and Prokofiev as well as celebrate Rachmaninoff’s 100th Anniversary in the US by performing his Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini with Russian-American piano soloist Olga Kern.
