The fourth and final concert of ‘Inspired, Naturally,’ the element-themed season of The Symphonia, will be held at 3 p.m. on Sunday, April 30 at Roberts Theater at Saint Andrew’s School in Boca Raton. Each concert within the series is inspired by one of the earth’s natural elements, with ‘Water’ serving as the theme for this performance. ‘Inspired Naturally’ is the theme of The Symponia’s 2022-2023 concert season, featuring classic works that embody four natural elements, Fire, Earth, Wind and Water. The Symphonia’s Principal Conductor, Alastair Willis (pictured), will close the season.
The concert repertoire includes:
- Ethel Smith: Overture to “The Wreckers” (arr Mark Buller)
- Dilorenzo: Jabberwocky
- Beethoven: Pastoral Symphony
Willis closes the season with Ethel Smyth’s overture to The Wreckers – a wildly romantic, stirring image of the sea and pirates; DiLorenzo’s Jabberwocky, which is based on the nonsensical poem by Lewis Carroll and Beethoven’s glorious Pastoral Symphony. As one of The Symphonia’s most beloved conductors, Willis is noted for his strong podium presence and engaging and attractive personality.
A pre-concert conversation hosted by David Kim will take place from 2 p.m. to 2:30 p.m., allowing ticket holders to learn more about the works performed that afternoon, which is free for concert ticket holders.
