Inspired By Italy

felix-mendelssohn-bartholdy

North State Symphony will be performing a concert program called Inspired By Italy on Saturday, November 12, 2016 at 7:30 p.m. at the Cascade Theatre, Redding, CA

  • Rossini: Barber of Seville Overture
  • Hummel: Trumpet Concerto in E major
  • Daugherty: Strut
  • Mendelssohn: Symphony No. 4 in A major, Op. 90 Italian

From the soaring sounds of Chicago Symphony trumpeter John Hagstrom to a Rossini overture that will make you reminisce of Bugs Bunny, this concert has composers that were directly affected by the musical culture and beautiful landscapes that Italy offers.

American composer Michael Daugherty created Strut, a string orchestra work that jives from beginning to end with fearless fiddling and vibrant syncopations that really set the stage for Mendelssohn’s famous Italian Symphony that closes out the evening.

Free pre-concert talk one hour before each performance.
