The West Virginia Symphony Orchestra is taking its spring symphonic concert on the road to Morgantown on April 28.
Under the direction of Maestro Grant Cooper, the WVSO will perform Ravel’s Ma mère l'Oye (Mother Goose Suite) which is Ravel’s musical depiction of some of the most beloved fairy tales, including Beauty and the Beast and Tom Thumb. The music will take a light-hearted turn with Stravinsky’s suite from the ballet Pulcinella, which was inspired by music attributed to 18th century Italian composer Giovanni Pergolesi. The concert will conclude with Mozart’s Symphony No. 36 in C major “Linz,” a charming symphony that Mozart wrote in four days while staying in the city of Linz, halfway between his birthplace of Salzburg and Vienna.
