Westminster Symphonic Choir: Mendelssohn's Midsummer Night's Dream CANCELED
The women of Westminster Symphonic Choir join Orchestra of St. Luke's for this all-Mendelssohn program.
High spirits and sweet melodies are Mendelssohn’s trademarks. His Violin Concerto opens with passionate exchanges between soloist and orchestra, followed by a gentle second movement that sings tenderly and a finale that is an effervescent romp with exuberant violin runs. The incidental music to Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream captures the play’s poetry—excerpts of which you will hear in David Hyde Pierce’s narration—and rustic humor. Listen for the orchestrated donkey brays in the Overture, a quicksilver movement depicting the fairy kingdom, and the famous Wedding March.
This concert has been canceled due to COVID-19 concerns.
