It's spring, and time for some "Brilliant, sunny music"!
Join us at 3:30 p.m. April 2 for Sundays at the Symphony with ... Beethoven's dramatic "Coriolan Overture"... Berlioz' colorful "Hungarian March" from "The Damnation of Faust"... Saint-Saens' spirited "Bacchanal" from "Samson et Dalila"... and Bizet's thrilling "Carmen Suite no. 1," as selected Irving high school musicians perform with us, chosen this year to perform in our annual side-by-side concert.
But the music that will really dazzle is the lovely Violin Concerto no.1 by Bela Bartok, the Hungarian composer, performed by our Romanian-born concertmaster, Dr. Adrian Demian, soloist. The concerto reveals Bartok's love for the violin and the young woman violinist to whom it's dedicated.
And come early, if you'd like, to enjoy the art at the Irving Arts Center - with free parking, galleries open before the concert and at intermission.
