Symphony of the Hills concert to highlight eight short works

Contributed

Audiences will hear eight different pieces–all written for dances–as the Symphony of the Hills presents Invitation to the Dance: Dance Music of the Ages, on Thursday, Feb 23, at 7:30 pm at the Cailloux Theater, 910 Main, Kerrville, Texas. The event will be preceded by a wine reception in the lobby at 6:30 pm.
“This concert is a real review of dance music, with eight works rather than the usual three,” said Dr. Eugene Dowdy, Conductor. “They are all fairly short because of the dance genre, and will represent everything from a hoedown to ballet, tango, polka, and minuet.”
Tickets start at $24 and can be reserved online at www.symphonyofthehills.org.
The program, sponsored by RE/MAX Kerrville & Kerr County Abstract includes: Bach: Orchestral Suite BWV 1069 in D Major, Von Weber: Invitation to the Dance, J Strauss, Jr: Tales from the Vienna Woods, Smetana: Dance of the Comedians, John Adams: Chairman Dances, Faure: Pavane, Op. 50, Copland: Hoedown from Rodeo and Rodriguez: La Cumparsita Tango.
The final concert of the season will be Mostly Mozart: Classical Favorites, on April 27. At that concert, the Board will announce the musical lineup for Season 2017-2018 and open up Patron seating.
Symphony of the Hills concerts are funded through season ticket sales, corporate and individual donations, grants and other assistance, and program advertising. Orchestra musicians come from the Hill Country area and include professionals, Schreiner University faculty, and advanced music students.
