Starlight Symphony Orchestra Presents Love and Romance Concert ~ Celebrating Our 20th Season
October 22, 2022 @ 8:00 am - October 24, 2022 @ 5:00 pm
Welcome to the 20th anniversary season of your Starlight Symphony Orchestra. At this first concert, we will be celebrating Love and Romance.
We start the program off with the powerful work by Rachmaninoff, one of the last great representative composers of Romanticism. Originally written for piano, this Prelude, Opus 3, No.2 is orchestrated for the whole ensemble to share the love of this truly powerful work! Although it is a short 5-minute piece, the emotions are strong and articulated.
Tchaikovsky’s, Romeo and Juliet is based on Shakespeare’s play of the same name. You know the story, now hear the music with its ups, downs, and struggles, like the two lovers.
Bizet’s Carmen is one of the most charming works written by this composer. The suite is a compilation of music written from his opera a story about a naïve soldier who is seduced by the wiles of the fiery, gypsy Carmen.
And finally, Gershwin’s An American in Paris is one of the modern (1928) delights inspired by the fantastical time that the composer had spent in Paris. The music evokes the sights, energy, and modern romanticism of Paris in the late 1920’s.
Join us for this grand performance of orchestral blockbusters.
