Southwest Florida Symphony will perform ‘Classically Simple’ at The Village Church
The Southwest Florida Symphony continues its 50th anniversary season with “Classically Simple,” featuring Prokofiev’s “Classical” Symphony no. 1, on Tuesday, Feb. 1 at 7:30 p.m. at the Village Church at Shell Point.
The New Year brings the opportunity to hear extraordinary works performed by talented professional musicians. Prokofiev’s “Classical” Symphony no. 1, a piece that is “classical” in form while exhibiting a more modern harmonic language.
The orchestra will also perform the Symphony no. 103 “Drumroll” by Joseph Haydn. Along with this timeless piece, the Southwest Florida Symphony will indulge in one the most charming and graceful of all works for cello and orchestra, Tchaikovsky’s Rococo Variations, as well as JC Bach’s Cello Concerto in C minor, both featuring cello soloist Mihai Marica. All of these pieces were inspired by the “classical” style of music.
Showcasing his incredible talents, Mihai Marica will be our featured guest soloist on two pieces; Tchaikovsky’s Rococo Variations and JC Bach’s Cello Concerto in C minor. Both compositions highlight the complexity and beauty the cello can create.
Tickets are $20. For tickets or more information, call the Symphony Box Office at 239-418-1500 or visit www.swflso.org/tickets.
