Sept. 13, 2012

Festival City Symphony will begin its 2012-2013 "Symphony Sundays" series with a concert entitled From the New World on Sunday, October 7, 2012, at 3:00 p.m. at the Pabst Theater, 144 E. Wells Street.

The orchestra will perform Dvorak's energetic, yet pastoral "Symphony No. 9, From the New World" and Louis Moreau Gottschalk's "Cakewalk," a series of five of his piano pieces arranged for orchestra by Hershey Kay, including "Grand Walkaround," "Magic Act," and "Wild Pony."

All "Symphony Sundays" performances include descriptive program information from the stage by Conductor Monte Perkins. Education Director Jayne Perkins will present Children's Program Notes at 2:45 p.m. to help children become familiar with the music they are about to hear. Symphony Sundays concerts are best suited for children grade 2 and older.
