The January TCS concert series features Sibelius' Symphony No. 5, a piece commissioned by the composer's native country, Finland, in honor of his own fiftieth birthday. Of this piece, Sibelius wrote, "it is as if God Almighty had thrown down pieces of a mosaic for heaven’s floor and asked me to find out what was the original pattern."

Deborah Nixon returns to the stage to perform the Saint-Saëns' Violin Concerto No. 3 on Friday and flutist Michelle Stockman performs Michael Colina's Isles of Shoals on Saturday. Both concerts open with a world premiere by TCS member, composer, and violist Eric Lemmon.

Concerts will be held at St. Paul's German Lutheran Church, 315 West 22nd Street
