University of Mary Washington Philharmonic Concert, "Young at Heart"

UMW Pilharmonic Spring Concert- Young at Heart

The concert will feature as guests the Rappahannock Youth Symphony, directed by Veronica Jackson, who will perform a number on their own and then will combine with the Philharmonic in the rousing “Russian Sailor’s Dance.” The Philharmonic will present “The Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra” by Benjamin Britten. This famous work highlights each section of the orchestra and teaches us what the instruments sound like and are capable of doing. This is the first time the Philharmonic has performed the work.

Also on the program is Copland’s “Billy the Kid Suite”, Kabalevsky’s “Dance of the Comedians”, Dvorak’s “Humoresque” and the spirited “Polka and Fugue from Schwanda the Bagpiper” by Jaromir Weinberger.

Admission $10.00, $2.00 for UMW students with ID.
