The Wanderer

Rossini Barber of Seville: Overture

Barber Violin Concerto, Op. 14
Simone Porter, violin

Bizet Symphony in C

Ravel Tzigane, for Violin & Orchestra

Our fourth masterworks concert features the music of Rossini, Barber, Bizet, and Ravel. We begin with a true masterpiece in Rossini’s Barber of Seville: Overture. With one of the most recognizable melodies of all time, this classic comedy will be reborn once again on stage. Bizet’s Symphony in C remains one of the greatest pieces from the romantic era and was written as a graduation project when Bizet was just seventeen years old. The highlight of this concert though is the acclaimed violinist Simone Porter. Ms. Porter is the recipient of several major awards and has been performing since she made her debut with the Seattle Symphony at the age of ten! She will be performing Barber’s Violin Concerto Op. 14 and Ravel’s Tzigane, for Violin & Orchestra. We are overjoyed to bring such a renowned artist to Lubbock to perform alongside our very own musicians.
