The rhythmic and dancelike spirit of Strum by award-winning composer Jessie Montgomery is presented in this powerful program featuring Beethoven’s ominous 4th Symphony and his most famous orchestral work, Beethoven’s 5th Symphony.
The orchestra explores heritage through music in Gabriela Lena Frank’s unique and masterful blend of western classical and Andean folk tradition in Leyendas: An Andean Walkabout, paired with Beethoven’s bold and evocative 3rd, also known as his Eroica Symphony.
The power and depth of Beethoven’s 2nd Symphony is presented with another Beethoven-inspired work titled Stride by GRAMMY® nominated composer Anna Clyne. The performance concludes with Beethoven’s popular and intensely energetic 7th Symphony.
We conclude our 23rd season with a world premiere and grand symphonic finale! The Las Vegas Philharmonic celebrates the “edge effect” in Juan Pablo Contreras’ new orchestral work, shining a light on the Mexican-American communities that have flourished on the border, and in cities like Las Vegas. For our last note, the orchestra performs Beethoven’s 9th and final symphony with four dynamic vocalists and a jubilant chorus.
