The fourth and final concert of ‘Inspired, Naturally,’ the element-themed season of The SYMPHONIA, is Sunday, April 30 at 3 p.m. at Roberts Theater at Saint Andrew’s School in Boca Raton. Each concert within the series is inspired by one of the earth’s natural elements, with ‘WATER’ serving as the theme for this performance. The Symphonia’s Principal Conductor Alastair Willis will be closing out the season.
The concert repertoire includes:
ETHEL SMITH Overture to “The Wreckers” (arr Mark Buller)
Willis closes the season with Ethel Smyth’s overture to The Wreckers – a wildly romantic, stirring image of the sea and pirates; DiLorenzo’s Jabberwocky which is based on the nonsensical poem by Lewis Carroll and Beethoven’s glorious Pastoral Symphony. As one of The Symphonia’s most beloved conductors, Willis is noted for his strong podium presence, and engaging and attractive personality.
‘Inspired Naturally’ is the theme of The Symponia’s 2022-2023 concert season, featuring classic works that embody four natural elements, Fire, Earth, Wind and Water.
Information on flex-subscriptions and single concert tickets and programs is available at thesymphonia.org, by calling 561-376-3848, or by emailing email@example.com.
A Pre-Concert Conversation hosted by David Kim will take place from 2-2:30 p.m., giving ticket holders an opportunity to learn more about the works to be performed that afternoon. Free for concert ticket holders.
