It is our privilege to have guest violinist Colin McGuire perform the three movement piece, “Schindler’s List” composed by John Williams. The piece centers around the story about Oskar Schindler who risked his business and life for the sake of saving 1,200 Jews from horrific exterminations during World War II. In addition, the orchestra will perform Symphony No. 5 by Beethoven and Finlandia by Sibelius.
