Curtain raiser Handel’s majestic “Rejouissance” will transform the acoustically superb hall into a festival of celebration with its joyous fanfares and noble airs followed by three dances from Bach’s shining “Orchestral Suite No. 3.”
The Symphony welcomes violinist Bella Hristova, a young musician with a growing international career, acclaimed for her passionate, powerful performances, beautiful sound, and compelling command of her instrument. She will perform Mendelssohn’s violin masterpiece with its heart melting melodies and fiery, virtuosic ending.
The Strad has praised, “Every sound she draws is superb,” and The Washington Post noted that she is “a player of impressive power and control.”
The concert includes a mix of short pieces by Leopold Mozart (“Toy Symphony” with its toy instruments), Kabalevsky (“Comedians”), Khachaturian (“Sabre Dance”), and de Falla (“Ritual Fire Dance”). Dancers from Ballet Americana will perform “Waltz of the Flowers” from Tchaikovsky’s “Nutcracker” and “Dance of the Tumblers” by Rimsky-Korsakov. With speed, warmth, power, and excitement, “The Tumblers” provides a sparkling finale.
The Veterans Day concert also will include an armed services salute.
The Dearborn Symphony has partnered with local restaurants for “Dinner and a Concert.” The restaurants — Andiamo Dearborn, Big Fish, The Dearborn Inn, Tria at The Henry, and La Pita — offer a 20 percent discount to symphony ticket-holders on concert nights. Reservations are recommended.
