Symphonic Flight

  • Atlas Performing Arts Center 1333 H Street NE Washington, D.C. (map)

The inherently musical songs and soaring grace of birds have long inspired symphonic composers. Join us for this special musical celebration of our feathered friends, conducted by Capital City Symphony’s Assistant Conductor Tiffany Lu and featuring esteemed violinist James Stern performing “Spring” from Vivaldi’s Four Seasons. The program also includes Sibelius’s tone poem The Swan of Tuonela, Wagner’s impressionistic Forest Murmurs, and Rautavaara’s Cantus Arcticus, which incorporates recordings of birdsong near the Arctic Circle and in Finland.
