Indulge in a delightful evening of truly Classical music featuring Mozart’s Symphony No. 40, also known as the Great G-minor Symphony — which transcended the Classical era and inspired some of the great Romantics to come — accompanied by Mozart’s lively and engaging Violin Concerto No. 4 in D major. With Haydn’s St. Nicholas Mass, the Asheville Symphony Chorus returns for another collaboration with the Asheville Symphony to round out this all-Classical program.
