Join the WWU Symphony Orchestra for its first concert of the 2019-2020 season with a new work by Sarah Kirkland Snider, based on Philip Levine’s 1961 poem For Fran. Claude Debussy’s sensuously ethereal Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun, also inspired by poetry—this time by Stéphane Mallarmé—concludes the program’s first half. The evening’s focus is Gustav Mahler’s Fourth Symphony, a meditation on heavenly life and the composer’s most concentrated and classical symphonic statement.
- Sarah Kirkland Snider: Something for the Dark
- Claude Debussy: Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune
- Gustav Mahler: Symphony No. 4 in G Major (Heather Dudenbostel, soprano)
