    Yoni Kahn, horn

    Featuring a little of everything, including Beethoven Symphony no. 1, wild romantic horn antics featuring Grand Harmonie co-founder and principal horn Yoni Kahn, a pirate-themed overture performed by the Grand Harmonie wind band, and Jacquelyn Stucker singing a most impassioned and dramatic concert aria.

    With pre-concert reception and time to explore the music from the inside out. It’s more of a party than a concert.

    Tickets: $15-$30
