Festival City Symphony concludes its “Symphony Sundays” series this season with
a concert entitled From the Steppes on Sunday, April 28, 2013, at 3:00

The concert features Mussorgsky’s “Pictures at an Exhibition.” Attendees will “see” ten pictures, ending with the “Great Gate of Kiev.” The orchestra will also perform Borodin’s “Symphony No. 2,” a patriotic salute to Russia. This piece features well-known themes used in the American musical “Kismet.”
All “Symphony Sundays” performances include descriptive program information from the stage by Conductor Monte Perkins. Education Director Jayne Perkins will present Children’s Program Notes at 2:45 p.m. to help children become familiar with the music they are about to hear.
