Festival City Symphony’s Jan. 27 “Our Home in Vienna” Concert Honors Viennese Masterpieces
Admission to each concert is $14 for adults and $8 for children, students, and seniors.
Milwaukee, Wis.—Festival City Symphony will continue its “Symphony Sundays” series with a concert titled Our Home in Vienna on Sun., Jan. 27, at the Pabst Theater, 144 East Wells Street. In a change from previous years, Symphony Sundays begin at 2 p.m. this season.
According to FCS Music Director Carter Simmons, “There is no more important place in music history than Vienna, Austria.” The program will feature engaging compositions from four Viennese masters, including Overture to the Magic Flute, K. 620 by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart; Blumine by Gustav Mahler; Where the Citrons Bloom by Johann Strauss II; and Symphony no. 3 in D major by Franz Schubert. In devoting a concert to masterpieces from Vienna’s great stages and concert halls, FCS hopes to renew appreciation for the remarkable culture and history of this city.
FCS welcomes children to these concerts, which are most appropriate for those in second grade and older. Prior to each concert at 1:45 p.m., Lynn Roginske presents “Children’s Program Notes,” offered to help children become familiar with the music they are about to hear.
Admission to each concert is $14 for adults and $8 for children, students, and seniors. Tickets may be purchased by calling the Pabst Theater Box Office at 414-286-3205 or visiting PabstTheater.org.
