Presented by York Symphony Orchestra at Appell Center for the Performing Arts, York PA

Apr 02 2016
Lullaby of Birdland

From the heart-pounding overture of Rossini’s La Gazza Iadra (The Thieving Magpie) to Stravinsky’s iconic Firebird Suite, this performance takes flight with pieces focused on nature’s aviators. This must-see concert will also feature the Pennsylvania premier of Locklair’s Phoenix for Orchestra, a 2007 composition with strong brass, organ and percussion parts. The York Symphony Orchestra’s own John Eaken, Concertmaster, will be showcased as violin soloist during Vaughan Williams’ pastoral romance, The Lark Ascending.
