The Florida Orchestra's season finale concert is May 24-26, Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto, featuring TFO violinist Jeffrey Multer. Tchaikovsky is known for his melodies, and this concerto has some of the best. But it wasn't always a hit. Its debut in 1881 wound up in the hands of an inexperienced violinist, and things didn’t go well. It got a terrible review. Thankfully, this time it will be performed by TFO's own virtuoso Jeffrey Multer, named concertmaster in 2006.
