Skagit Symphony embarks on a new chapter with a season of four guest conductors as finalists for the Music Director position. The Gala Concert welcomes conductor Bobby Collins to lead the orchestra, and soprano Sherrie Kahn in a performance of Berlioz’ elegant cycle of songs, Les Nuits d’Été. Our Gala Concert also includes Verdi’s dramatic overture to the opera La Forza Del Destino, and Tchaikovsky’s ever-moving and popular Romeo and Juliet Fantasy Overture.
Come share this evening of beautiful music with us as we launch our 39th season!
La Forza del Destino (The Force of Destiny), by Giuseppe Verdi
Les Nuits d’Été (Summer Nights), by Hector Berlioz
Romeo and Juliet Fantasy Overture, by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky
Please join Guest Conductor Bobby Collins for his pre-concert lecture in the concert hall at 6:45pm.
