Sammamish Symphony Presents A Joyful Fanfare: Beethoven’s Second Symphony

Past event

Thursday, June 8, 2017 @ 7:30 pm

Sammamish Symphony Orchestra

Meydenbauer Theatre, Bellevue, WA

Kristy Park, cello

Beethoven – Symphony No. 2
Elgar – Cello Concerto in E minor
Anderson – Belle of the Ball, Blue Tango, and Fiddle Faddle
Copland – Our Town: Suite
Sousa – Washington Post March, US Field Artillery March, and The Stars and Stripes Forever

Written at the time when his deafness was first becoming apparent, Beethoven’s Symphony No. 2 is nonetheless a joyous and festive work that bespeaks its composer’s indomitable spirit. The concert concludes with three of America’s most treasured musical voices: Leroy Anderson, the master of light symphonic music, Aaron Copland, “the dean of American composers,” and John Philip Sousa, the justly-crowned and never-deposed “March King.”

Special guest cellist Kristy Park, winner of the Sammamish Symphony’s 2017 Youth Concerto Competition, also joins the orchestra for a performance of Edward Elgar’s Cello Concerto in E minor.
