Beloved music director Gustav Meier, now in his 41st and final season, will lead an all-orchestral program. In a GBS season devoted to music from around the world (America, Germany, the North Pole!), it's now time to celebrate spring with stoops along the warm, sunny and enchanting Mediterranean Sea. With audience favorites as Respighi's "Pines of Rome"; Puccini's Capriccio sinfonico; and Tchaikovsky's Cappriccio Italien, you are invited to be part of the excitment.
