The Firebird - concert season opening night gala
Kindred Spirits Orchestra 2018 | 2019 10th Anniversary Season presents:
Opening Night Gala and Silent Auction
Saturday, October 20, 2018 at 8:00 p.m.
Flato Markham Theatre for the Performing Arts
Join the Kindred Spirits Orchestra in celebrating the opening concert of the season. Start the evening off in style with an opening night gala followed by music that conveys the deepest of emotions. Influenced by the ostentatious ballrooms of days gone by and the aftermath of First World War Europe, Ravel’s La Valse is an enchanting choreographic poem for orchestra. Khachaturian weaves the rhythm and melodies of his Armenian heritage into his fervently dazzling Violin Concerto. Scored for ballet based on Russian fairy tale, The Firebird was the first large-scale work that launched the career of the prominent 20th century composer Igor Stravinsky.
