Renée Fleming will perform during a special pre-season concert on Sept. 9.

Fleming will receive a Kennedy Center Honor in December and received a 2018 Tony nomination.

Then, the centennial season celebration officially begins on Sept. 21 and 23, as Maestro Andreas Delfs conducts Beethoven’s Eroica. The performance will feature guest soloist Alisa Weilerstein, a Rochester native who is one of the classical world’s foremost cellists.

Also this season, the RPO will celebrate 30 Years of Jeff Tyzik on Nov. 3. Tyzik is the the RPO’s principal pops conductor and Grammy-winning hometown hero. In addition, Garth Fagan Dance will take the spotlight on January 13, 2024, serving up new choreography for Stravinsky’s ballet The Rite of Spring.

The RPO has held concerts since 1922.
