Saturday, April 18, 2015, the Allen Philharmonic Orchestra and Symphony Chorus invite you to our next concert performance A Winning Combination. This event takes place at 7:30pm at First United Methodist Church of Allen, located at 601 S. Greenville Ave., Allen TX.
Orchestral selections include Leonard Bernstein’s Three Dance Episodes from On the Town and the First Movement of Dvořák’s Cello Concerto in B minor, performed by Belle Ra, Gold medalist of the Allen Philharmonic’s own Roger & Ella Jo Adams Concerto Competition.
Special guest Allegra De Vita, Gold Medalist and Grand Prize Winner of the 2014 Young Texas Artist Competition, will perform Maurice Ravel’s Shéhérazade, a song cycle for soprano solo and orchestra, after three poems by Tristan Klingsor: Asie, La flûte enchantée, and L’indifférent.
The Allen Symphony Chorus will take our guests on a musical journey as they perform highlights from Rodgers and Hammerstein’s South Pacific. Based on James A. Michener’s Pulitzer Prize winning 1947 book Tales of the South Pacific, featured songs include There is Nothing Like a Dame, I’m Gonna Wash That Man Right Outta My Hair, Bali Ha’i, and Some Enchanted Evening. Allegra DeVita will perform with the chorus as the featured voice in these selections. The Chorus will close with Alexander Borodin’s Polovetsian Dances. Written for his opera Prince Igor, the choral themes you will enjoy in this concert were incorporated into the 1953 musical Kismet.
