Anderson Center season to feature Haifa Symphony OrchestraTweet
• The Haifa Symphony Orchestra of Israel will take the stage on Feb. 12. Considered the most significant musical assembly in north Israel and led by Principal Guest Conductor Boguslaw Dawidow, the program includes: “Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 6 in B Minor, Op. 74”; Maria von Weber’s “Overture of the Opera Euryanthe” and Rachmaninov’s “Piano Concerto No. 2 in C Minor, Op. 18” with pianist, Roman Ravinovich.
• The Soweto Gospel Choir, with its 52-strong voices, is sure to raise the Anderson Center roof at 3 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 23. This award-winning group was formed in 2002 to celebrate the unique and inspirational power of African gospel music. Their audiences have included such notables as Nelson Mandela, Bill Clinton, Desmond Tutu and Prince Charles.
• A mix-rep program is in store on Monday, April 7, 2014, when the renowned Moscow Festival Ballet returns under the direction of the legendary principal dancer of the Bolshoi Ballet, Sergei Radchencho. Excerpts from “The Sleeping Beauty,” “Cinderella” and “Don Quixote” are just a few of the selections showcased for the evening.
• As part of the Anderson Center’s partnership with Mid-Atlantic Arts Jazz Touring Network, Snarky Puppy, an instrumental jazz-fusion band, will make an appearance at a date that will be announced in the near future.
