Saturday evening Winona Symphony Orchestra concerts are back! The first concert of the 2016-2017 season will feature a set of Serenades:
Serenade for Strings (1937) is Swedish composer Dag Wirén’s most famous work. It pairs nicely with the Mozart Serenade in D due to Mozart’s profound influence on Wirén.
Composed in 1776 and scored for strings and timpani with a solo quartet, Mozart’s Serenade in D will feature principal WSO players in the solo quartet.
Antonin Dvořák’s Serenade for Strings closes the program. Because serenades are intended to be performed in the evening, this program is appropriate for the WSO’s first Saturday evening concert in several years.
The preconcert talk will begin at 7pm. Location: Harriett Johnson Auditorium – Somsen Hall – Winona State University. Tickets are $15/adults, $6/students and are available at winonasymphony.org, Hardt’s Music, or at the venue prior to the concert. Information about free tickets for school aged students can be found on the website.
