What's Interesting About This Concert

  • Rogue Valley Symphony Composer-in-Residence, David Ludwig, is premiering an original work for RVS the first commissioned piece for the composer-in-residence program

  • The main theme of the Maestoso movement of the Organ Symphony has been featured as a melody in many pop songs and the main theme of the movie Babe (1995)

  • We are thrilled to welcome back a Rogue Valley favorite, Pianist Vijay Venkatesh! The Washington Post said of Venkatesh: “Vijay Venkatesh is blessed with it all: transcendent technique, unbridled passion, and irresistible charisma. He breathes with an oxygen of imagination.”

  • This is the Rogue Valley Symphony’s first time playing a piece featuring an Organ under the baton of Music Director Martin Majkut
