This music will exhilarate you! Auburn Symphony Orchestra will perform three magical works by Huang Ruo, Florence Price, and Piotr Tchaikovsky on Sunday, January 30, 2022 at 2:30 PM at Federal Way Performing Arts and Event Center.
Auburn Symphony is pleased to present a program featuring composers from around the world. Piotr Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 6, commonly titled Pathétique, is one of the most compelling musical portraits of the human condition. Tchaikovsky made this statement about the symphony, “Without exaggeration, I have put my whole soul into this work.” From brooding to melancholic and feverish to ecstatic, this Symphony is a journey through all the emotions we feel as humans. Experience what it is like to let this music wash over and through you.
Auburn Symphony is also pleased to present on this program Folk Songs for Orchestra by Chinese composer Huang Ruo as well as violinist Bella Hristova performing Florence Price’s vivacious Violin Concerto No. 1. Gwynne Kuhner Brown, Professor of Music at the University of Puget Sound, will discuss the music before the concert at 1:30 PM.
Tickets and information can be found at auburnsymphony.org or by calling the FWPAEC Box Office at 253-835-7010. Ticket prices are $40 general, $32 seniors, and $12 students.
