Symphony Ball Gala Package
Wagner, Mendelssohn, Tchaikovsky
Saturday, September 29, 2012
A tour de force awaits as we celebrate the start of the 2012/13 season at Symphony Ball! The Women's Board of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra presents a festive evening of excitement and enchantment. Riccardo Muti and the CSO raise the curtain with the overture to Wagner's The Flying Dutchman, filled with sweeping, stormy strains that will carry you away on a wash of sound. With its hauntingly beautiful melodies, Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto is simply stunning; captivating violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter returns to the CSO to present this breathtaking work. Our jubilant evening comes to a close with the brass band and cannon fire of Tchaikovsky's invgorating 1812 Overture, commemorating Russia's defeat of Napoleon's invading forces 200 years ago.
