Governor's Gala A Joyful Fantasy!

The musical fantasy has always been a way for a composer to have free reign to express themselves without the structure that many other styles of music require. Here we discover six wonderful Fantasies and then finally have the chance to celebrate the 25th anniversary of our resident Goldner String Quartet with their special commission featuring 25 fantastical variations on Ode to Joy, The Goldner Variations.
