Another culturally exciting event that we are excited to have in our neighborhood are the concerts of the Sacramento Philharmonic Orchestra. Each concert is held at the Community Center Theatre in Downtown Sacramento. This season we look forward to attending the following line-up as listed in the Phil’s 2010/2011 event calendar!
French Flair: Impressionist masters, Debussy and Ravel, will take you to the sun-drenched shores of Spain with the evocative Iberia, and to the streets of Paris with the Gershwin-inspired Piano Concerto in G, performed by world renowned California native, Jeffrey Kahane. Then we’ll raise the roof with Ravel’s flamboyant Bolero!
Basically Beethoven: Our yearly tribute to Beethoven is back, but this time with some friends—his and ours! Celebrate the virtuosity of our musicians in Beethoven’s 7th Symphony, paired with the “all-encompassing technical prowess” of pianist Sara Davis Buechner in one of Mozart’s greatest works.
Hidden Meanings: Discover worlds revealed through Elgar’s “mostemotional and deeply felt composition”, the CelloConcerto in E minor, and Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 5 in D minor; profound, expressive and gripping accounts of war, power and love for country through the lens of the composer.
Homegrown Sacramento!: The best of Broadway comes to you! Live from Sacramento, Tony award-winning Broadway star,
Faith Prince, debuts with her hometown orchestra, singing favorites from Broadway including Frank Loesser’s Adelaide’s Lament from Guys and Dolls, Stephen Sondheim’s The Ladies Who Lunch from the musical Company, and other heartwarming sets
of jazz standards. Emerging young Sacramento star and first place winner of the Philharmonic’s 2009-2010 Classical Concerto Competition, Ray Anthony Trujillo, also performs with the orchestra, playing a romantic-era treasure, Henryk Wieniawski’s Violin Concerto No. 2 in D minor.
