The concert will begin with Tchaikovsky’s popular “Marche Slav,” followed by Alexander Borodin’s “Polovtsian Dances,” which includes the melody now known as “Stranger in Paradise” from Kismet. Completing the season will be Tchaikovsky’s “Symphony No. 3,” called the “Polish Symphony” because of its infectious polonaise dance rhythms.
