The Lewisville Lake Symphony has big plans for Friday night for its closing concert of its 30th season: one popular symphonic work performed by the full orchestra, a lesser-known work by a famous composer and one exhilarating overture.
There’s also a “buy one, get one free” ticket offer, and a free post-concert party for the entire audience with refreshments and the opportunity to meet the maestro and members of the orchestra.
Maestro Adron Ming will conduct Dvorak’s Symphony No. 9, From the New World. It is Dvorak’s most famous symphony and one of the most popular in the Romantic repertory. Assistant conductor Gregory Grabowski will lead the orchestra in the energetic and tuneful overture Ruslan and Ludmilla, Glinka’s opera based on a Pushkin epic about a lighthearted romp through wild adventures and love. Maestro Ming rounds out the program with Brahm’s turbulent and tormented Tragic Overture.
The symphony has a long relationship with Denton, both through the longstanding presence of University of North Texas College of Music faculty serving on its board and the performances of rising stars in the college’s graduate programs in the symphony’s free chamber music series.
The concert will start at 7:30 p.m. Friday at the Medical Center of Lewisville Grand Theatre, 100 N. Charles St. in Old Town Lewisville.
Tickets cost $25 for adults, $20 for seniors and $10 for students. To take advantage of the “buy one, get one free” offer, use the code “APRIL” at checkout online at www.lewisvillesymphony.com. Tickets can also be purchased at the door.
