Symphony Number 5

When: Sat., April 20, 8 p.m. 2013

Let me tell you what the Finns like: skiing, Nokia phones and the sauna. (They invented the last two.) But those are sort of givens. Now, what do you know about Finnish music? You should know at least one name: Jean Sibelius. As Finland's premiere composer, Sibelius is not only an icon of Suomi, but a member of your basic classical music canon. Learn more at tonight's 8 o'clock Beyond the Score performance from the Colorado Springs Philharmonic. They'll play Sibelius' Symphony No. 5 — written during World War I, just prior to Finland earning its independence — under the direction of Josep Caballé-Domenech. Tickets start at $23 for this Pikes Peak Center (190 S. Cascade Ave., show. — Miguel Bustamante
