Shostakovich’s Tenth Symphony: Despair And Triumph

The Tenth was written at the time of Stalin’s death, and in it, Shostakovich weaves a profound reflection that intertwines the intimately personal and brutally political. Carefully constructed but expressively wide-ranging, this work is Shostakovich’s first to bear his musical signature, a theme constructed from notes spelling out his name.

Wednesday, August 22, 6:00 pm | River Run Lodge

Closing out the summer concert series is Baldygrass One-Night Music Fest featuring The Infamous Stringdusters, Kuinka and AHI. This lineup combines bluegrass, Americana and an up-and-coming indie-soul artist to create a musical night that can’t be missed.

Though bluegrass is known for traditionalism, the ‘Dusters have consistently covered new ground, inspired fans and redefined what a bluegrass band can be. Playing everything from originals, traditional songs and completely unexpected covers of songs like “Get Lucky” by Daft Punk and The Cure’s “Just Like Heaven,” this band leaves no stone unturned in connecting with audiences young and not-so-young. Winners of the 2017 Grammy for Best Bluegrass Album, the ‘Dusters are recognized in the musical world and by their fans as outstanding performers and musicians.

Tickets available HERE.

If you listen carefully, you can hear it. The glide of a rosined bow across violin strings, a resonant cello being tuned, and the deep boom of a timpani drum echoing through the mountains. The sounds are still faint – still off in the future – but they are getting louder. Why? It’s nearly one of the most wonderful times of the year -- Sun Valley Symphony Season! Free concerts from world-class musicians span three glorious weeks starting this year on July 29 with the In Focus Series. The highly anticipated
