Bucks County Symphony Orchestra Spring Concert
The Bucks County Symphony Orchestra, under the leadership of Music Director Gary S. Fagin, announces its annual Spring Concert, to be held at Central Bucks High School South on Saturday, April 28, 2018, at 8:00 pm.
The concert is sponsored by Eastburn and Gray, PC and Univest Bank and Trust Co.
The featured soloist is Simone Porter, joining the orchestra in a performance of Erich Korngold’s Violin Concerto in D Major. Ms. Porter has been recognized as an artist of impassioned energy, musical integrity and vibrant sound. Her performances have been described as “bold” (Seattle Times) and “virtuosic” (London Times). She made her professional solo debut at age 10 with the Seattle Symphony and has appeared with such illustrious ensembles as The Philadelphia Orchestra, New York Philharmonic, Pittsburgh Symphony, and Los Angeles Philharmonic.
The BCSO opens the concert with Alexander Borodin’s “Polovetsian Dances” from the opera, Prince Igor. Originally composed for chorus and orchestra, this evocative score forms the musical basis for the 1954 Tony Award-winning Broadway musical, Kismet.
The concert concludes with a performance of Peter Tchaikovsky’s grand Symphony No. 5 in E minor. Composed in 1888, the symphony’s recurring “Fate” theme is employed as a device to unify the four movements, taking on a funereal character in the first movement, but transforming into a triumphant march which dominates the final movement.
