Festival City Symphony: Symphony Sunday Series
FESTIVAL CITY SYMPHONY OPENS SEASON WITH “LONDON BRIDGES” SYMPHONY SUNDAYS CONCERT
Festival City Symphony will begin its 2013-2014 “Symphony Sundays” series with a
concert titled London Bridges on Sunday, October 6, 2013, at 3:00 pm at the
Pabst Theater, 144 East Wells Street.
The concert will feature two works honoring London. The first is Franz Joseph Haydn’s “Symphony No. 104 (London),” inspired by his time in England in 1795. The second piece, Ralph Vaughan Williams’s stimulating “A London Symphony,” was composed more than a century after Haydn’s symphony and suggests sounds heard in Westminster and beyond.
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. Symphony Sundays concerts are best suited for children grade 2 and older.
Admission to each concert is $14 for adults and $8 for children, students, and seniors. Early-bird season ticket packs are available through October 1, 2013, in several categories—a season Family Pack admits an entire family to all four concerts for just $75; Couples Packs admit two people to all four concerts for $72; a Single Adult Pack admits one adult to all four concerts for just $50; and a Senior or Student Pack admits one adult over age 60 or a student to all four concerts for $28.
