Symphony of the Redwoods to offer concerts Feb. 8-9

FORT BRAGG, Calif. – Symphony of the Redwoods is proud to offer two performances of beautiful and stirring music this weekend.

The Winter Concert, scheduled for 8 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 8, and 2 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 9, presents Sibelius’ Symphony No 1 and Dvorak’s Cello Concerto in B Minor with Stephen Harrison, cellist.

Jean Sibelius’s first symphony is filled with the enthusiasm and passion of youth – a soaring tribute to his beloved homeland, Finland.

His love for his country’s people and its spectacular, glacially-carved landscapes were the inspiration for this lovely, lyrical piece of music.

Richer in depth and tone, Antonin Dvorak’s Cello Concerto in B Minor is generally considered one of the most beautiful cello concertos ever written.

The symphony is pleased to have Stephen Harrison, principal cellist for the Mendocino Music Festival, join them from the Bay Area for this performance.

With its three movements offering vibrant, warm melodies, it has been a concert favorite of American symphonies since its first publication in 1896.

The Symphony of the Redwoods is generously supported this season by North Coast Brewing Co. and the Westport Hotel.

This weekend’s concert will be held at Cotton Auditorium, in Fort Bragg.

Tickets are $20 each at Harvest and Tangents in Fort Bragg, and at Out of this World in Mendocino, online at www.SymphonyoftheRedwoods.org and at the door. Those age 18 and under are always free.

For further information, contact Alex Pierangeli at 707-964-0898 or symphony@mcn.org .
