VSO Music Director Jaime Laredo returns to the podium with a program that prominently features woodwind soloists. New York Philharmonic Principal Clarinet Anthony McGill appears alongside the VSO’s own Principal Bassoon Janet Polk in Richard Strauss’ Duet Concertino. Then, McGill takes the stage for Mozart’s brilliant Clarinet Concerto. The orchestra gets a chance to show off in George Bizet’s “Symphony in C,” written as a student assignment in about a month, just after the composer turned 17.
