FWSO Presents Pulling Back the Curtain: Sibelius, Dvorak and Brian Raphael Nabors
Last year, the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra was one of the only large ensembles to perform live concerts. The orchestra did so at Will Rogers Auditorium while following stringent safety guidelines for both musicians and audience members. Fort Worth’s resident symphony orchestra has returned to Bass Performance Hall for the 2020-2021 season. The opening concert features violinist Ray Chen, who will perform Sibelius’ stirring Violin Concerto, a symphony by Dvorak and a new work by Brian Raphael Nabor.
