Mendelssohn: Violin concerto in E minor
YuEun Kim, violin
7:30PM, Saturday, April 21, 2018
Combined choirs join the Sequoia Symphony as we end the season by pulling out the stops of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 in a special performance at LJ Williams auditorium. The choral texts suggest themes of universal brotherhood and an all inclusive human experience, which will be in full display as more than 160 musicians take the stage.
Copland: Billy the Kid (suite)
8:00PM, Saturday, April 28, 2018
Celebrate Spring with a variety of dance music! From ballet to the hoedown and the charleston, this concert combines some of the best dance music from the mid-20th century. Billy the kid's legendary story is illustrated through a simple and homespun yet powerful retelling about one of America's first anti-heroes. And we close this concert with yet another orchestra showpiece, "The Firebird." It caused an absolute sensation at it's premiere and brought instant worldwide fame to it's brilliant composer, Igor Stravinsky. We will all know why at the end of this concert.
