Grammy Award-winner James Ehnes opens the season alongside Courtney Lewis and the Symphony with Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto in E minor, a Romantic masterpiece full of dazzling vivacity and tender melodies perfectly suited to Ehnes’ seemingly boundless facility. The program opens with Jacksonville Symphony violinist Piotr Szewczyk’s River City Fanfare, and concludes with a piece that needs no introduction, Beethoven’s fateful Fifth Symphony.
