Stravinsky: Firebird Suite (1919)

This concert is a rhythmic frenzy that starts with images of a Roman carnival and then features violinist Chloé Trevor on a new concerto by Redding’s own Dan Pinkston. Chloé then goes on to dazzle us with Ravel’s showpiece, Tzigane, which takes us on many turns, from sinuous to virtuosic agitation. The suite from Igor Stravinsky’s first ballet, Firebird, closes the concert with one of the most colorful and exuberant endings of the early Twentieth Century. The MTAC Youth Symphony and the Shasta College Pre-Symphony join the NSS in Moncayo’s Huapango.

Free pre-concert talk one hour before each performance.
