SUMMIT - The Summit Symphony Orchestra continues its 2019-20 season on with a performance entitled 'Rolling Down the River' on March 15, beginning at 2 p.m., at Summit High School. The concert will include music by Smetana, Castellanos and Schumann.
Admission to all Summit Symphony concerts is free, with donations are gratefully accepted.
The concert will feature concert music inspired by rivers. One of Smetana’s most famous works, The Moldau, will evoke thoughts of this famous Czech river. El Rio de las Siete Estrellas (The River of the Seven Stars) is by the Venezuelan composer Evencio Castellanos. It is inspired by a poem about the Orinoco River and describes events of precolonial Venezuela. Schumann’s Symphony # 3 in Eb Major is subtitled The Rhenish, and refers to the Rhine River.
The Summit Symphony has been providing free orchestral concerts since 1938. Their 2019-20 season's final performance will be on May 31. For more information, visit summitsymphony.org.
Summit High School is located at 125 Kent Place Boulevard.
