Dean Anderson, Artistic Director
Symphony Irvine and La Sierra University Symphony at the Disney Concert Hall in June 2015
Opera Favorites with Symphony Irvine and Friends
Join Symphony Irvine in two electrifying performances (May 15 and May 21) of some of the world’s greatest music from the operatic repertoire! From the cello choir at the beginning of Rossini's William Tell Overture to the rousing finale of Wagner's Rienzi Overture, this concert program has something for everyone.
If you like the power of a full symphony orchestra, we have the Overture to Rienzi by Richard Wagner to quicken your pulse! If you like the drama and emotion of an opera aria, we have three outstanding soloists – Won Jae Warren Kim, baritone; Katherine Giaquinto, soprano; and Rebecca Sjöwall, soprano – who will inspire you with their moving interpretations. If you like the sweetness and sparkle of a solo violin, we have Ga Hyun Cho performing Sarasate’s Carmen Fantasy for violin and orchestra that will definitely win over your heart.
Yes, indeed – there is truly something for everyone!
