For more than 75 years, the Festival City Symphony has performed lively renditions of classic masterpieces in casual concerts that please the ears of children and learned music students alike. Against the lush backdrop of The Pabst Theater, this season’s Symphony Sundays indulge ear palates in globetrotting sounds spanning a wealth of genres. “And All That Jazz” melds classical and bebop musicianship as jazz pieces such as Darius Milhaud’s The Creation of the World stir in a melodious martini with the fluttery bombast of George Gershwin. “Give Me That Country Life” escorts audiences to rural France as the orchestra joins acclaimed soprano Patrice Michaels in a salute to rustic living, spotlighting traditional Canteloube folk songs and Rossini overtures that evoke the days before wireless cheese. Symphony Sundays conclude with “A Musical Grand Tour” of Scotland, Italy, and Fantasy Island, steered by the transcendent tunes of Mendelssohn, Marcello, and Howard Hanson’s Romantic Symphony. Children’s program notes boost enjoyment and comprehension in enhancing preshow activities that alleviate oboe anxiety in young-uns.
Though the Festival City Symphony offers discounted tickets for $8 for student and seniors, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
