"Mozart & Rising Stars"


What better combination, than the eternally youthful Mozart -- classical music's ultimate child prodigy -- and the brilliant young finalists of our annual Richard Record Rising Stars Competition? Join us and be thrilled by the amazing talents of these young soloists, from across the region, in what has become one of the LSO's great traditions.

The night begins with the Overture to Shakespeare’s “Midsummer Night’s Dream” written by a 17 year-old Felix Mendelssohn, while Mozart's final symphony -- his Symphony No.41, the awesome "Jupiter" -- crowns the evening’s second half.

"Spring Finale & A World Premiere"

Our 125th Anniversary Season ends with an evening that the major orchestras of the Midwest would envy for themselves! To start, an anniversary World Premiere: a sumptuous orchestration of a forgotten late-Romantic genius, the African-American composer and pianist Nathaniel Dett, by one of the great Black musicians of our time: the former composer-in-residence with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, Jonathan Bailey Holland, recently appointed Dean of the Northwestern University School of Music.

Then, the La Crosse debut of one of the world's great emerging pianists, the young Russian-Canadian artist,  Andrey Gugnin, in Edvard Grieg's timeless and beloved Concerto in A Minor. And in another great LSO tradition, we present our winning Conductor Wannabes, as our two top fundraisers get to try out their talents on the podium!

And we close with the magnificent Finnish landscapes of Jean Sibelius' Symphony No.3, with its almost rock-music ending bringing our 125th anniversary to an unforgettable conclusion.
