Wyoming Symphony Opens 63rd Season This Weekend
Saturday, September 29th, 7:30 p.m. kicks off the Wyoming Symphony Orchestra’s 63rd Concert Season with a vibrant symphonic experience. The evening starts with James Beckel’s Toccata for Orchestra, a display of virtuosity featuring the entire orchestra.
Then after his memorable Casper debut in 2009, the WSO welcomes back violinist Yvegeny Kutik performing Mozart’s charming 3rd violin concerto in G Major with the surprising appearance of the Gavotte in the third movement. Hailed for his dazzling command of the violin and its repertoire, as well as a communicative immediacy that harkens back to the legendary Romantic masters, Kutik has become a highly sought-after artist on the concert stage worldwide.
The next piece is considered Gustav Mahler’s most beautiful creation, the Adagietto from his 5th Symphony, which includes a highly coveted harp solo for string players. Finally, the orchestra will raise the roof with Paul Hindemith’s exciting and playful Symphonic Metamorphosis which premiered with the New York Philharmonic at Carnegie Hall in 1944.
The concert will be performed at the John F. Welsh Auditorium at Natrona County High School.
Season tickets are still on sale at the Wyoming Symphony Office and individual tickets for Symphonic Metamorphosis are on sale at Wind City Books (Downtown), Sadler’s Hallmark (Eastridge Mall), Cadillac Cowgirl (Sunrise Shopping Center) and the Wyoming Symphony
