WENATCHEE VALLEY SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA CELEBRATES MUSIC FROM VIENNA
Fourth Concert Features Viennese Classics
The fourth concert of the Wenatchee Valley Symphony Orchestra’s 69th season will be presented on Saturday, April 23 at 7 p.m. at the Numerica Performing Arts Center. The concert is entitled Viennese Classics and concludes the season themed Music You Know and Love. River Street Photography and Voortex Productions are the concert sponsors.
Symphony music director Nikolas Caoile said, "Please join us as we complete our 69th season with music that demonstrates the mastery of composers from the first Viennese school: Mendelssohn's tone poem based on a visit to a cave in the Hebrides of Scotland, Beethoven's stormy, but personal Piano Concerto No. 3, and Haydn's final Symphony."
The evening will feature John Pickett, professor of piano at Central Washington University. John has received critical acclaim for his performances in the U.S., Europe and Asia. In June of 2006 he performed Rhapsody in Blue at Carnegie Hall with orchestra to an audience of over 2,000.
Concertgoers are invited to attend the Concert Prelude at 6 p.m. in the theatre. Maestro Caoile will discuss the evening’s music selections and composers in a fascinating presentation. A complimentary post-concert reception will be held in the lower lobby immediately following the concert.
The WVSO participates in the Orchestras Feeding America project. Patrons are encouraged to bring non-perishable food items and place them in the bins by the theatre doors. Your food donations will be given to local food banks to help alleviate hunger in our valley.
Tickets are available for purchase at the PAC box office, by telephone at (509) 663-ARTS, in person at 123 North Wenatchee Avenue, or online at numericapac.org. Ticket prices for the concert range from $18-$37.
