For the Reporter

Many great artists persevere through extreme hardship and criticism when producing their beautiful works. The third and final installment of this season’s Chamber Concert Series at the

Auburn Symphony Orchestra celebrates just that.

The program, Struggle of the Genius, begins at 4 p.m. Sunday, March 11 at St. Matthew/San Mateo Episcopal Church, 123 L St. NE, Auburn.

While many musicians face roadblocks on their way to fame and fortune, Ravel and Shostakovich faced extraordinary hardships on their journeys.

Both composers’ fantastic works in this program are the result of hard work and perseverance stemming from the rejection and opposition that they encountered throughout their lives.

Tickets are $37 general, $30 seniors, $10 students. Call 253-887-7777 or purchase online.

The concert is sponsored in part by the City of Auburn.
