Festival City Symphony: Bigger is Better

We close our season with a bang as we perform true full-orchestra sized symphonic music. Richard Strauss’s erotic “Salome’s Dance” from his opera “Salome” and Richard Wagner’s “Overture and Venusberg Music from Tannhauser” are sensual, melodic, and among the most romantic music ever composed. An aging Strauss culminated his career with the “Four Last Songs” to texts of love, nature, and death. Performing with us today is nationally acclaimed soprano Kathy Pyeatt.
