Shasta Symphony Orchestra Concert

Unforeseen Journeys

Ever have a great idea turn out totally different than expected? The idea of unexpected results, both positive and negative, is explored musically through two masterworks of the orchestral repertoire. First is Prokofiev’s “Lt. Kije Suite,” based on a story from old Russia when a typographical error on a military census caught the Tzar’s eye and the generals had to invent a “picture-perfect Lt. Kije” to cover for their mistake... including hosting a royal burial with an empty casket! Second is Schubert’s Symphony in B minor, which is nicknamed “The Unfinished” because it is only two movements long. However, the composer didn’t run out of time. Rather, after finishing the powerful and sublime first two movements, he thought any additional music would be unnecessary! Finally, vocal artist JennyRebecca Winans will sing two gorgeous arias by Verdi and Dvorak. This event will be located at the Shasta College Theater.
