One of the most popular pieces in the repertory, "Finlandia," is a symphonic poem by Finnish composer Jean Sibelius. Much of the work is rousing music evoking national pride of the Finnish people. But near the end, a calm comes over the music and the serenely melodic Finlandia Hymn is heard. The closing performance of the season showcases Mariusz Patyra, the phenomenal Polish violinist and winner of the Nicolo Paganini International Violin Competition that wowed audiences at his Plano Symphony debut with Paganini's Violin Concerto No. 1. Patyra will be heard in four show-stopping works for violin and orchestra. Dvorak's energetic overture begins the grand finale for the 2011 – 2012 season.
