FESTIVAL ORCHESTRA: CONCERT OF TRIUMPH
“The trumpets shall sound” when Verdi’s Triumphal March FromAida begins this concert. Festival Orchestra member and Principal Trumpet of the Dallas Symphony, Ryan Anthony joins the Orchestra to perform James Stephenson’s Concerto No. 3, an emotionally powerful work that evokes beauty and heartache, hope and rejoicing. Tchaikovsky’s Capriccio Italien, a richly descriptive portrait of Italy, and Respighi’s magnificent Pines of Rome transport us, with lush beauty and fanfare, to the landscape and rhythms of the Eternal City.
