Now in its 65th year, the 70-piece Spokane Symphony performs for more than 150,000 sonata supporters in the Pacific Northwest each season, powerfully reciting the works of several treble-clef-crazed composers. The Casual Classics series approaches the works of Beethoven, Mozart, and Schubert with the clever conceit that all three masters had Facebook pages. “Beethoven’s Facebook” (September 23) imagines the social-networking travails of Deutschland’s adorable curmudgeon, clicking ears' “Like” buttons with a collection of narrative symphonies and overtures. “Mozart’s Facebook" (March 9) showcases the uplifting and humorous works of Vienna’s most notorious moppet to create Amadeus's aural homepage, where pokes are prominent and Falco and F. Murray Abraham’s friend requests are denied. The series concludes with “Schubert’s Facebook”, which supposes that between cranking out tragic masterpieces, Schubert would be trolling for parties or dirt on ex-girlfriends.
Performances take place at the Art Deco’d Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox, which originally opened to exuberant fanfare in 1931. Recently restored to reflect the grandeur of its original state, the 1,600-seat theater now breathes with its effervescent murals and a mingle-ready lobby. Within the theater's warm, sharp acoustics, you can hear the second cellist's every eighth note and the xylophonist silently wondering if he closed the garage door.
