About This Program

Meet Arthur Honegger. Definitely not a household name, Honegger is one of the few Swiss composers that has survived the test of time, and rightfully so! His Pastorale d'ete is a short symphonic poem reflecting the beauty and majesty of you guessed it, the Swiss Alps.

There may be no other story set to music that is more gripping and gruesome than Antonin Dvorak's Watergoblin. Based on Czech lore, this one will definitely have you checking under the bed tonight.

For the first time since its founding, the COT will knock on fate's door. Music's ultimate statement, not much needs to be said about Ludwig van Beethoven's 5th Symphony. Join the COT as we rejoice in the end of 2021, a year of many trials, tribulations, and ultimate deliveries.
