Preston Suite, a suburban symphony
November 25, 2018 @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm$12 – $25
The centerpiece of the next concert by the Preston Symphony Orchestra is the world premiere of a new work about Preston itself. Three composers have reflected on the sound of Preston at different times of the day. Luke Speedy-Hutton’s morning bustle becomes the daydreaming of William Schmidt’s afternoon, before Keyna Wilkins captures the mystery of a suburban night as trams rattle in the distance.
Under the baton of conductor Joseph Lallo, the concert journeys explores ideas of home and away with Finlandia, the Prelude to Hansel and Gretel and Solveig’s Song, performed by soprano Rada Tochalna, before concluding with Khachaturian’s effervescent Masquerade Suite.
