The Winona Symphony Orchestra Fall Concert will feature the WSO strings in a glittering array of works new and old. The concert opens with Hawaiian composer Michael-Thomas Foumai’s Kaunānā, written as an exploration of musical ideas old and new. Dvořàk’s lustrous string serenade closes the program, a work he wrote just on the cusp of becoming the famous composer he is still today, and a beautiful pictorial tribute to his Czech homeland. The program is made complete with conductor Erik Rohde trading in his baton for his violin, joining concertmaster Hillary Kingsley in a performance of the beloved Bach Double Violin Concerto.
Tickets are $15 for adults and $6 for college students. The Symphony offers free admission to high school students with a student I.D., and elementary and middle school students receive free admission when accompanied by a paying adult. Advance tickets are available online at winonasymphony.org or in person at Hardt’s Music & Audio (115 East Third Street, Winona) and at the venue on the evening of the concert.
