Brilliant, sunny music

April 2, 2023 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

It’s spring, and time for some music full of colors!  Join us for Beethoven’s dramatic Coriolan Overture… Berlioz’ exciting 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.

But the music that will really dazzle is the lovely Violin Concerto no. 1 by Bela Bartok, the Hungarian composer, as 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.


Repertoire recap:

  • Saint-Saëns: Bacchanal from Samson and Dalila
  • Berlioz: Hungarian March from The Damnation of Faust
  • Bartok: Violin Concerto No. 1, Sz. 36, soloist: Dr. Adrian Demian
  • Bizet: Carmen Suite No. 1
