So much fun and enjoyment watching Thierry Fischer direct an evening of Bach. He directed while playing the piano. He is excellent doing both. Flute soloist Mercedes Smith was outstanding. Of course, the space is fantastic.

Top notch symphony that can compete with the best in the world. Their Deer Valley performances in the summer are a special treat.
