Time: 1:30pm. Admission: $45. Age restrictions: All Ages. Box office: Call 304-232-6191. Address: Oglebay Park. The final concert of the series is a “Global Celebration” and our own WSO musicians will take center stage. Our adventure begins in Argentina, with a rousing work by the king of tango, Astor Piazzolla. We will then head to Japan and hear a haunting concerto for solo alto flute and harp by the legendary Toru Takemitsu, featuring WSO principals Barbara O’Brien (flute) and Fran Duffy (harp). Now traversing west, we arrive in Russia, where we will experience the wrenching music of Dimitri Shostakovich in his String Quartet no. 8, arranged for string orchestra. Then, we turn our attention back to Europe and explore the work of a relatively unknown but brilliant French composer from the Classical period, Chevalier de Saint-Georges, in a concerto for solo violin played by WSO Concertmaster Rachel Stegeman.
