Sat., May 21, 2022, 8 p.m.
Warminster Symphony Orchestra’s May 21, 2022, 8 p.m. concert at William Tennent Auditorium, 333 Centennial Road, Warminster, Pa., 18974, is a delightful and entertaining escape to the magical lands of fjords, castles, forests and fairytales.
The program includes the ever-popular Peer Gynt Suite, by the Norwegian composer, Edvard Grieg; the beautiful symphonic work, Helios Overture, by the Danish composer, Carl Nielsen; the Karelia Suite, a work based on ancient Nordic legends and brimming with Finnish pride by the great Jean Sibelius; and a piece by Johan Halvorsen that is often billed as “The world’s most popular march” — Entry March of the Boyars.
According to Joseph Lovecchio, music director and conductor of the Warminster Symphony Orchestra, “Whether you are hearing Nordic classical music for the first time or are a long-time fan, you will be enthralled by our performance of this rhythmic and expressive style.
“And, having acclaimed soprano, Holly Gash, embody the vocal legacy of the sensational Swedish Nightingale, Jenny Lind, will add a nostalgic thrill to the program.”
