Upcoming Shows

Summer Series July

July 25th - 8pm
EdenVale Winery

Program

Wagner: Sigfried Idyll

Rutter: Suite Antique
Katheryn McElrath, flute

Delius: Two Pieces for Small Orchestra

Britten: Simple Symphony

I cannot imagine a more perfect setting for this program than an outdoor concert on a balmy summer night. Every piece should make your heart jump with joy. Take the opening of Siegfried’s Idyll by Wagner. It is a love poem that the composer wrote for his wife and serenaded under her window on the morning of her birthday. On the other side of the concert, we will perform the ever-popular Simple Symphony (which is everything but simple) by Britten.

Katheryn McElrath is our flute soloist in Rutter’s Suite Antique – a modern composer’s nod to Baroque masters. Finally, Two Pieces by Delius lure you with their evocative titles: On Hearing the First Cuckoo in Spring and Summer Night on the River.
