The excitement continues with a performance that contains powerful orchestra favorites. The concert opens with Handel's "Music for the Royal Fireworks" and closes with one of the most popular overtures in music, one that is associated with patriotic events in the USA: Tchaiovsky's 1812 overture. The concert will not feature one but two soloists: pianist Dzmitry Ulasiuk playing Ravel's concert for the left hand.....(yes, it only uses the left hand) and soprano Haley Sicking, singing famous opera arias as well as music from Broadway musicals. Musical fireworks indeed.
