Milwaukee, Wis.—Festival City Symphony will continue its “Symphony Sundays” series with a concert titled A Celebration of Spirit on Sunday, January 26, 2014, at 3:00 pm at the Pabst Theater, 144 East Wells Street.
The first concert of the new year features Rossini’s tuneful and energetic “Overture to The Thieving Magpie.” Then the FCS French horn section will perform as soloists in Robert Schumann’s “Concert Piece for Four Horns.” The program will close with Sergei Prokofieff’s “Symphony No. 5,” a work he described as “about the spirit of man, celebrating freedom, happiness, and strength.”
All “Symphony Sundays” performances include descriptive program information from the stage by Conductor Monte Perkins. Education Director Jayne Perkins will present Children’s Program Notes at 2:45 p.m. to help children become familiar with the music they are about to hear.
