An Afternoon at the Ballet: Great Orchestral Works
This concert features orchestral performances of works for the ballet by Copland, Prokofiev, Saint-Saens, and Khachaturian, as well as a performance by the winner of the orchestra’s youth concerto competition, and a collaboration with the Colorado Springs Childrens Chorale.
This program includes music from three beloved 20th century ballets: Prokofiev’s “Romeo and Juliet,” Khachaturian’s “Spartacus,” and Copland’s “Billy the Kid.” The orchestra will also perform the riotous “Bacchanale” from Saint-Saens opera Samson and Delilah, and will be joined by the Colorado Springs Childrens’ Chorale on Bocelli’s “Con Te Partiro.” Finally, youth concerto competition winner Emma Johnson will perform Saint-Saen’s melodic and impressionistic Violin Concerto #3.
