Thomas Heuser, conductor

Camille Saint-Saëns knew his music was reaching a pinnacle. He wrote of his mighty Organ Symphony: “I gave everything to it…what I have accomplished here, I will never achieve again.” Our Pursuit of Perfection program explores this powerful statement and the depths of his story. Join us as we celebrate the debut of our 2022 Young Artists Competition (YAC) Winners, making powerful first statements live in concert.
