About the event
First, the orchestra will capture the audience with light, orchestral selections from the Strauss family that will make you feel like you’re dancing through the streets of Vienna.
From there, we transition into operatic favorites from Puccini, Lehar, and Gounod, featuring the velvet soprano voice of Elena Perroni — an Australian native who has risen to international esteem performing in title roles with the West Australian Opera, in concert with The Philadelphia Orchestra, and in venues all over the world.
We finish the evening with a celebration of American composers. George Gershwin’s Girl Crazy Overture will have you singing along to classic melodies like Embraceable You and I Got Rhythm. Then, we take a trip to the west side with Leonard Bernstein’s Symphonic Dances from West Side Story, featuring standout melodies like Somewhere, Maria, and Mambo.
Join us for a Post Concert Reception at Backwards Distilling Company's Tasting Room immediately following the concert.
