23 Jan The Symphonia’s March 2023 Concert Will Blow You Away
The third concert of ‘Inspired, Naturally,’ the element-themed season of The SYMPHONIA, is Sunday, March 26 at 3 p.m. at Roberts Theater at Saint Andrew’s School in Boca Raton. Each concert within the series is inspired by one of the earth’s natural elements, with ‘WIND’ serving as the theme for this performance. David Kim, longtime friend of The Symphonia and renowned concertmaster of The Philadelphia Orchestra, is principal conductor and violin soloist.
The concert repertoire includes:
MONTGOMERY Voodoo Dolls
MOZART Rondo in G major “Haffner”
MOZART Serenade No. 6, Serenata Notturna, K.239
PIAZZOLLA Four Seasons of Buenos Aires
Kim will lead The Symphonia performing Jessie Montgomery’s lively ‘Voodoo Dolls,’ two melodious works by Mozart, and the virtuosic ‘Four Seasons of Buenos Aires’ by Astor Piazzolla. One of The Symphonia’s most popular guest conductors, Kim brings passion, humor, intelligence and even a high-tech component to each performance.
‘Inspired Naturally’ is the theme of The Symponia’s 2022-2023 concert season, featuring classic works that embody four natural elements, Fire, Earth, Wind and Water.
