THE BAY-ATLANTIC SYMPHONY PRESENTS

WORKS FROM PROKOFIEV AND MENDELSSOHN

AT THE STOCKTON PERFORMING ARTS CENTER, MAY 7th      

‚ÄúWhere the Arts Come Alive!‚ÄĚ

 

GALLOWAY, NJ, APRIL 7, 2017 ‚Äď The Bay-Atlantic Symphony will perform selections by Prokofiev and Mendelssohn at the Stockton Performing Arts Center on Sunday, May 7th. ‚ÄúConversation with the Conductor‚ÄĚ will be held in the L-Wing Gallery at 1:00 p.m.

Folklore is the watchword for this colorful panoply of dance and melody. Young superstar violinist Luosha Fang (Curtis), joins the Bay-Atlantic Symphony for Prokofiev’s treacherous Second Concerto ending in a diabolically warped witch’s dance. Just as fiery is the conclusion to Mendelssohn’s Italian Symphony, featuring a scorpion-stung tarantella. Woven amongst the adrenaline are some of the most haunting melodies from any continent.

The Bay-Atlantic Symphony is Stockton‚Äôs ‚ÄėOrchestra-in-Residence.‚Äô ¬†

They will perform the following selections:

Glinka‚ÄĒKamarinskaya; Fantasy for Orchestra on Two Russian Folksongs
