- Rossini—William Tell Overture: the overture to Rossini’s 1829 opera about the legendary marksman enjoyed new life in the 20th century—the Finale is best known as the theme song of The Lone Ranger radio show—but the third movement, Ranz des Vaches, should be familiar to anyone who has ever seen a sunrise
- Finzi—Clarinet Concerto: Despite the titular instrument’s reputation for dulcet clarity, Finzi’s concerto opens on a dissonant, almost ominous note. The woodwind then blends in with the orchestra, carrying the tune to a more hummable melody.
- Ravel—Mother Goose Suite: Originally composed for duo piano, Mother Goose was written for Mimi and Jean Godebski, ages 6 and 7. Throughout the work, Ravel draws on the tales of Sleeping Beauty, Tom Thumb, and Beauty and the Beast to entertain his young audience.
- Stravinsky—The Firebird Suite: Inspired by a fairytale from Russian folklore, this ballet score hits all the classic fairytale notes—a dashing prince captures the titular magical firebird, but releases it in exchange for help against a terrible evil, the demon Kastchei. The piece’s enchanting narrative, marked by flitting woodwinds and rumbling brass, captured the attention of the world upon its 1910 debut, and rocketed Stravinsky to international stardom.
Long Beach Symphony
A community institution for over 80 years, the Long Beach Symphony has entertained generations of audiences. The Symphony produces six full symphonic classical concerts throughout the year at the Long Beach Performing Arts Center Terrace Theater and five more eclectic POPS! concert events in the Long Beach Arena, entertaining more than 32,000 residents throughout the season. Outside of their concert events, the Symphony also provides over 24,000 local school children with access to music at their schools, libraries, and community centers, as well as ensembles and concert field trips for every LBUSD 2nd-5th grader in the public school system.
