Symphony plays ‘Winter Wonders’

The Sequoia Symphony will feature two symphonies that celebrate “Winter Wonders” on Saturday, Jan. 12 at the Visalia Fox Theatre


VISALIA – Tchaikovsky’s short, sweet “Winter Daydreams” opens the program, a delightful piece that music director Bruce Kiesling describes as a snowball fight. It was the composer’s first symphony and one of his favorites, inspired by Russian folk songs.

Sibelius’ “Symphony 2” is his best-known symphony and has the feeling of a Scandinavian winter. Kiesling says the last movement is one of the most thrilling in the repertoire. Sibelius called it a “confession of the soul.”
The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. Kiesling will discuss the pieces at a pre-concert talk at 6:45 p.m.
Tickets are available at the symphony office, 559-732-8600, or at www.sequoiasymphonyorchestra.com.
