The title of this concert pays homage to some of the unsung heroes of the Orchestra: the second chair players. These fine players will be featured as the “main course” in this concert, performing solo pieces by Vivaldi, Mozart, Bartók and more. The program concludes with “dessert” — Bach’s Brandenburg Concert No. 3. Buon appetito!
