Each year the ACO travels north to Georgetown to perform in Southwestern University's Alma Thomas Theater. This year’s concert, The Russians are Coming!, will include Aram Khachaturian’s Sabre Dance and Tchaikovsky’s Andante Cantabile for Violoncello and String Orchestra with guest artist cellist Hai Zheng. The second half of the concert features Dmitri Shostakovich’s powerful Symphony No. 5.
