**  Monterey Symphony Sound Waves  Concert II **
November 18
San Carlos at Ninth Street
Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 4, Op. 36 – often referred to as the "Fate" symphony because of the dark undertones – headlines the second concert of the season. Written in the shadow of Beethoven's masterful Symphony No. 5, Tchaikovsky echoes the great master's melancholy in this hallmark orchestral work.

Carol Wincenc, professor of flute at Juilliard, joins the orchestra for Carl Nielsen's Flute Concerto, composed in 1926 for the legendary flautist M. Holger-Gilbert Jespersen. This concert will also feature members of the Youth Music Monterey County Honors Orchestra playing side-by-side on Hector Berlioz's Overture, Le corsaire, Op. 21, which, like the Tchaikovsky symphony, was also composed during a period of great despair.

Join us one hour prior to every performance for our pre-concert lectures.

Max Bragado-Darman, conductor

**  Sunset Presents: An Evening With Bruce Hornsby  **
Sunset Center
San Carlos Street at Ninth Avenue
November 25
Bruce Hornsby's work displays a creative iconoclasm that's been a constant in the artist's two-and-a-half decade recording career. His commercial stock soared early on, when "The Way It Is" -- the title track of his 1986 debut album -- became one of the most popular songs on American radio. Despite his early mainstream successes, Hornsby has pursued a more personal, idiosyncratic musical path, focusing on projects that sparked his creative interest, including collaborations with the Grateful Dead, Spike Lee, Ricky Skaggs, Don Henley, Ornette Coleman, Bob Dylan, Bela Fleck, Justin Vernon, Bonnie Raitt, Pat Metheny, and Robbie Robertson. Hornsby's performance will offer a glimpse of a restless spirit who continues to push forward into exciting new musical terrain.
