CSO musicians present a feast of music for chamber orchestra, opening with Joan Tower’s first Fanfare for the Uncommon Woman, written for large brass ensemble and percussion and dedicated to conductor Marin Alsop. George Walker’s serene Lyric for Strings and Darius Milhaud’s musical homage to his homeland in the south of France round out a program that culminates in Tchaikovsky’s enchanting Serenade for Strings.
