Shreveport Symphony Orchestra performs on Sat, Feb 5, 7:30 pm, Riverview Theater, Shreveport
SHOSTAKOVICH - Symphony No. 5 in D MinorListen button
A pair of 5’s—two of the most dramatic symphonies in the repertoire. Beethoven's famous Fifth is a journey from darkness to light, from turmoil to victory. Shostakovich's Fifth has a similar arc, but was written under duress as the composer had to satisfy a tyrannical Stalin. The result is a tour-de-force of ironic protest and a testament to the indomitable human spirit.
Join SSO cellist Paul Christopher for a free pre-concert talk in the hall at 6:30 p.m.
FREE SHUTTLE SERVICE - starts at 6:30 PM
Free shuttle service runs from the Regions Bank parking garage at the corner of Milam & Market Streets.
