As Albert Einstein sagely observed, “Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.” It is the desire and goal of the Bainbridge Symphony Orchestra to make this concert a unique and wonderful experience, and they encourage you to let your minds wander the infinite space of your imagination. Rachmaninoff’s beautiful and lovely Vocalise sets the initial tone for the concert. Then, the acclaimed soprano Cyndia Sieden will delight you with Strauss’ Four Songs, Op. 27 – songs that were written as a wedding gift for his beloved bride, soprano Pauline de Ahna. For their last selection, they invite you to give free reign to your creative muse as we immerse ourselves in the extraordinary tales of Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade.
