- Elgar described his popular overture as "cheerful and Londony...honest, healthy, humorous and strong, but not vulgar". Listen out for cockneys, church bells, couples in love, and various brass bands.

- Sibelius' lush and romantic Symphony No. 1 is thought to have one of the most unique openings in the genre with a lone clarinet underscored by a rumbling timpani, creating a theme out of which the entire symphony develops.

- Commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the Moonlanding, astronomer Dr. Jose´ Francisco Salgado returns to the Atwood stage with Moonrise, a film comprised of lunar images, time-lapse photography, historical illustrations, as well as NASA scientific visualizations. All of this celestial wonder is set to Ravel's beautiful orchestral suites from Daphnis et Chloé.
