This program features the FSO’s strings, with Jung-min Amy Lee, Associate Concertmaster of the Cleveland Orchestra, in The Four Seasons by Vivaldi. Vaughan Williams’s Fantasia borrows the English Renaissance music of Tallis. Of his Serenade, Tchaikovsky wrote, “The larger number of players in the string orchestra, the more this shall be in accordance with the author’s wishes.” Student string players from Flagstaff schools will join FSO to create the lush sound of an expanded string ensemble.
All concerts begin at 7:30 p.m. in Ardrey Memorial Auditorium on the campus of Northern Arizona University.
Concerts are preceded at 6:30 p.m. by a Conversation with the Conductor, giving the audience the opportunity to speak with the conductor and guest soloist(s) about the evening’s program.
